JUPITER, Fla., March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Preventative healthcare and wellness services are now available to The Florida

Bar's legal community through a newly approved member benefit offering with Wellbeing Coaches, a division of HMC HealthWorks. Participants will receive discounted telephone and online mental health counseling to support their goals of improving health
and well-being.

"Mental illness carries a stigma and through our relationship with The Florida Bar, we look to support the legal community through de-stigmatizing mental health issues and guiding attorneys toward leading healthier lifestyles," explained Victoria Craze, co-founder, Wellbeing Coaches, a division of HMC HealthWorks, a nationwide 40-year veteran of healthcare management solutions. 

The member benefit is designed to offer one-on-one individual coaching services to support lawyers who face daily pressures and stresses that compromise overall mental and physical health. The Florida Bar notes in a 2015 survey more than one-third of Florida lawyers reported high stress as a major problem, followed by work-life balance. Seven out of 10 attorneys surveyed said they would change careers if they could.

"Since starting the conversation about the health and wellness of our lawyers, this added member benefit is just one of many ways we have identified to focus on the well-being of our members," stated Michael J. Higer, president of The Florida Bar. "And we are just getting started."

In July of 2017, a five-member committee appointed by The Florida Bar Board of Governors was created to address the health and wellness needs of attorneys. The Special Committee on Mental Health and Wellness of Florida Lawyers was created to oversee how the Bar could make the mental health and wellness of its membership a priority. This June, the theme of the 2018 Florida Bar Annual Convention held in Orlando will be health and wellness.

Wellbeing Coaches can be accessed through The Florida Bar Member Benefits page of The Florida Bar website.
