Utah State Bar Contracts with Tava Health for Mental Health Services

The Utah State Bar has partnered with Tava Health to offer all licensees and their dependents access to high-quality mental health services. Beginning February 1, 2023, members can access Tava’s platform to select a licensed, professional mental health counselor.
 
Tava counselors are master’s and doctorate-level providers trained to provide assistance with a wide range of issues, including stress, work pressure, relationship issues, trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, family issues, grief and loss, LGBTQ issues, postpartum issues, PTSD, and eating disorders.
 
Appointments are easy to schedule and will typically be available within five business days of Member request. Members and dependents pay nothing for the first six sessions per year.
 
Additional sessions beyond the six will be available at a current rate of $125 per session. Tava counselors are also on network with many common health care insurance plans in Utah. The six complementary sessions reset at the beginning of each year, running from February 1 to January 31.

Bar Launches New Centralized Pro Bono Dashboard for Utah Attorneys

The Access to Justice department of the Utah State Bar has launched a new Utah Pro Bono Opportunity Portal in partnership with the Pro Bono Commission and sponsored by the Utah State Bar. This is a centralized dashboard using a system called Paladin that tracks pro bono opportunities in Utah in real time. These opportunities include Utah State Bar programs and listings from community partners. 
 
Now is the time to consider how to engage with pro bono to reach your 50-hour service goal for the year. There are options for brief advice, limited scope representation, and full representation pro bono cases. Part of being a legal professional means serving the community. Paladin makes this process easier by tailoring the process to an attorney’s interests and availability. This is truly a one-stop shop where attorneys can filter opportunities by interests, practice areas, type of service, and availability.
