Mental Health Awareness Month

From the Orange County Clerk’s Office

 In observance of Mental Health Awareness Month, the Clerk’s Office will be hosting a special lunch and learn event on Friday, May 25th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.

The event, My Health Matters Health, and Wellness Lunch & Learn, will include health presentations, wellness screenings, giveaways, and in-person meet-and-greets with the Mental Health Association of Central Florida, Orlando Health, the YMCA, and Cigna.

Hear useful information from keynote speaker Dr. David Cavalleri who will provide insight on how to deal with trauma in his presentation “Reflections of Trauma.”

One in four adults in the United States experiences a mental health disorder in a given year. However, a mental health disorder does not only affect the person suffering from the disorder, but also their family and friends.

“This month is devoted to understanding the important needs of our individual health with a primary focus on mental health,” said Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell. “The #MyHealthMatters initiative is a collective partnership I wanted to build to inform the community about valuable resources available to help them.”

The Orange County Clerk’s Office Mental Health Division maintains the court records when proceedings are held to determine the capacity or incapacity of an adult. If you are concerned for the safety of a family or friend who is suffering from mental illness or substance abuse, you may file a petition for a Baker Act or Marchman Act at our office.
