Suicide Outreach in Florida

Alarming national trends as well as tragic events close to home have prompted the Florida Lawyers Assistance program (FLA) to develop a new outreach program to further educate the legal community about suicide. Their goal is to raise awareness about the risk factors of suicide and the steps one can take when faced with someone who may be suicidal. The recent Florida Bar News article, “Lawyer Suicide, Finding a Ray of Sunshine through a Dark Cloud,” by Dr. Scott Weinstein, discusses the issue in more depth and provides a useful list of risk factors and guidance on responding to someone who may need help.
