Join us on Wednesday, May 10 for a Mental Health Coffee Chat followed by a presentation on Understanding the Baker Act. Similar to our previous Coffee Chats, from 8:30 to 9:15 am you will have a chance to network with others, ask Peace River Center clinical staff questions about mental health, and enjoy specialty coffee from Quigley Coffee Cart.
At 9:15 am Peace River Center’s Crisis Team members will present on The Baker Act, Florida’s mental health act. Misconceptions and misunderstandings often surround The Baker Act, so our experts will share what the Act is and is not, how it works, and how it helps families and individuals. We will also share the role Peace River Center and law enforcement have in local Baker Act process. Have a specific question you would like answered during the presentation? Email us!
Registration for the Coffee Chat is encouraged, but you are also invited to drop by during the event.
