Changes to the System of Care

The Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 12, which made changes in the criteria for involuntary assessment and treatment, and changes in who can initiate a Marchman Act.  The bill aligns several important aspects of the Marchman and Baker Acts so that licensed professionals can initiate either one based on which is more appropriate to the circumstances. Gov. Scott signed this into law and changes will take effect July 1, 2016.
