Florida Baker Act Training and Technical Assistance

About the Project

Through a contract with the Florida Department of Children and Families, faculty have implemented statewide training on Baker Act (civil commitment) procedures in Florida, including those related to involuntary outpatient placement.

Our Baker Act on-line training enables anyone wishing to learn about the Florida Baker Act law to learn on his or her own time using our on-line and self-directed learning environment. Please visit http://www.bakeracttraining.org/ for information on how to register for the on-line training.
