​​​​(Updated 10/7/19)


NASW Volusia/Flagler kick-off event brought a spectacular presentation from Flagler County Sheriff, Rick Staly, about the Baker Act, including a history of how deinstitutionalization impacts law enforcement and how mental health policies impact school gun violence. He brought more than 40 years of service, experience and a unique perspective as the son of a former social worker! Look for his new initiative, "time to be a parent again," coming soon to Flagler County at http://www.flaglersheriff.com/. 

















The discussion of the Baker Act is part one of a larger discussion, with part two coming in October. Be sure to register for Assessment, Documentation and Liability featured in the right column. Working with high risk clients is an all too real part of practice.


There were 600 plus Baker Acts from the Sheriff's Office in Flagler County for 2018, and already more than 500 so far this year. Join us to explore more about how to protect yourself, your practice and your clients!
