San Francisco’s Behavioral Health Court will celebrate its tenth anniversary this year

By: Fred Martin

Oct. 16 at 6pm at the St. Francisco Yacht Club.  A special invitation from Fred J. Martin, Jr.:  “In October, we will acknowledge the program, ‘Celebrating A Decade of Behavioral Health Court.’ During this special evening event we will recognize the accomplishments of the program; raise awareness about the reality of mental health issues in our community; and identify future goals for the broad based collaboration that created the program.  As an outcome of this event, we hope to launch a citywide initiative to provide guidance to decision makers about important developments at the intersection of mental health and law.  The San Francisco Leadership Forum on Law and Mental Health will focus attention on three areas:  educating the community about mental health and legal involvement; maximizing resources through the use of evidence based treatment modalities; and, restoring dignity through appropriate care and treatment.  As a vice chair of the committee, I call this event to your attention and invite your participation.”
