To assist with added stresses caused by the pandemic, all registrants for the August 2020 bar exam in Florida may now use the Florida Lawyers Helpline — a free confidential 24/7 service providing professional mental-health counseling.

By calling 1-833-FL1-WELL (1-833-351-9355), exam registrants will speak with counselors who can also make referrals for up to three free sessions a year with a licensed mental-health professional via phone or virtual video service.

Calls to the helpline are unlimited and confidentiality is protected — no information shared with the counselors is provided to the Florida Board of Bar Examiners or The Florida Bar, including the callers’ name.
