Event description

Description

The Baker and Marchman Acts allow family members or friends to request a court order for involuntary assessment and/or treatment for a person who has a mental illness or substance abuse impairment, is a danger to themselves and/or others, and refuses voluntary help. This free workshop will address the legal requirements for filing a petition under the Baker or Marchman Act and the procedural steps involved in filing such a case.

This workshop is procedural only - the Clerk's office cannot provide legal advice.

Registration is encouraged but not required.
