Surge in Child Baker Acts Prompts Watchdog to Call for Greater Protection of Children

Involuntary examinations are being initiated on children without parental knowledge. The parent finds out AFTER their child has been Baker Acted.

Normal Childhood Behavior is not a Mental Illness

CCHR is asking lawmakers to change how the mental health law is applied to children to protect them from traumatic involuntary psychiatric examinations.

The manner in which the Baker Act is being initiated, especially when dealing with children, is a gross violation of human rights.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The mental health law in Florida, commonly called a Baker Act, allows for a person of any age to be taken into custody and transported to a psychiatric facility for examination. During 2018 there were over 200,000 Baker Acts with more than 36,000 of them initiated on children. Some of these children are very young, including those between the ages of 2 and 5 years old. [1]

According to the Baker Act Reporting Center, involuntary examinations more than doubled in the past 17 years prompting the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) to call for amendments to existing state law to protect children from abuse. CCHR is concerned over the large number of individuals being sent annually for involuntary psychiatric examinations in light of the fact that it is known that a percentage of these Baker Acts are illegal due to a failure to meet the criteria for taking a person into custody.

In order to take a person into custody under a Baker Act there are three criteria that must be legally met yet it is common knowledge that this is not always done and it was disclosed during a meeting of the Baker Act Task Force in 2017 that 30 percent of the Baker Acts initiated on children in Pinellas County did not meet the criteria. This alarming fact is one reason CCHR believes the Baker Act needs to be reformed so that parents and guardians are brought into the process before a child is put through the trauma of a Baker Act in an effort to reduce illegal Baker Acting of minors. [2]

In the example of minors, parents and legal guardians are being left out of the process only finding out that their child has been Baker Acted after initiation and usually after the child has been transported by law enforcement to a psychiatric facility. CCHR believes that this is a rights violation, a belief that is shared by Sheriffs, Police Chiefs and even School Districts across Florida.

“The involuntary psychiatric examination of children is a gross violation of human and parental rights,” stated Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida.

Over the past several years, CCHR has worked to educate those granted the power to initiate a Baker Act on a child on why a parent or guardian should be brought into the process before initiation resulting in county and city level policy changes that requires parents to be contacted prior to initiating a Baker Act.

However, greater protection of children is needed according to CCHR who is calling for lawmakers to change how the mental health law is applied to children and teens to help prevent unjust involuntary psychiatric examinations.

Those interested in learning more about CCHR’s campaign to protect children from abusive Baker Acting are encouraged to call 800-782-2878.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

ADDICT II ATHLETE IS RAISING FUNDS TO HELP MORE INDIVIDUALS ERASE ADDICTION THIS GIVINGTUESDAY

Utah-based nonprofit organization that helps individuals erase addiction is raising funds

UTAH COUNTY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — This GivingTuesday, Addict II Athlete, a Utah-based nonprofit organization that helps individuals erase addiction through health, recreation, service, relationships and team unity, is raising funds to help more individuals & families who are struggling with addiction.

According to AddictionCenter.com, almost 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment. By providing addiction recovery services over the last 8 years, Addict II Athlete staff understands that one of the barriers to receiving treatment is the cost. That’s why they are not only raising funds to help more individuals and families in Utah access their life-changing programs but to expand the free content they produce via podcasts and YouTube videos to support the individuals and families who have no-to-little resources to help them overcome addiction.
For the last 8 years, Addict II Athlete has operated solely on the support of volunteers. While the nonprofit has been able to make life-changing impact with this support, they know they have only tapped the surface and can make a much bigger impact by expanding its programs locally and by providing educational resources nationally.

Addict II Athlete seeks to raise a total of $30,000 this GivingTuesday which will enable the nonprofit to provide more free community support groups, educational resources, athletic programs and coaching for those who have been so deeply affected by addiction, including the family members.

Whether individuals can donate one dollar or a larger amount, every donation will help Addict II Athlete provide life-changing resources to those who are struggling. Individuals who are interested in knowing their specific impact can contribute toward these specific areas:
• A $20 donation will give an athlete a team jersey.
• A $30 donation will give an entry to a race for a new athlete.
• A $40 donation will give an athlete 5 hours of sober education to assist individuals in overcoming recovery obstacles.
• A $50 donation will provide the funds necessary to produce a 1 hour recovery based podcast or educational video to the public.
• A $75 donation will give an athlete a race entry to an ultra or trail event.
• A $100 donation will give an athlete a brand-new pair of running shoes.
• A $500 donation will give an athlete 5 individual coaching sessions with coach Blu Robinson.

"When an individual has the courage to be vulnerable and reach out for support or come to a meeting, most do not have the finances to get what they need. To be able to gift that person something as simple as a team jersey does the world for them to feel part of something bigger than themselves and be part of a team.”
-Coach Blu Robinson, Co-Founder of Addict II Athlete

GivingTuesday takes place on December 3rd, 2019. Individuals who are interested in helping Addict II Athlete make an impact can visit www.AddictToAthlete.com/givingtuesday

The need for volunteer help is tremendous.

The Colombian government has recognized the Catholic Church, Greek Orthodox Church and the Church of Scientology for their aid to Venezuelan refugees.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Life has been harsh for the refugees in the border town of Cúcuta. Fleeing the humanitarian crisis in their native Venezuela, some 1.2 million have made the arduous trek west to Colombia, seeking a better life.

Colombia has been hard-pressed to provide for the needs of these people, and nonprofits and religious organizations have stepped in to provide care—among them the Volunteer Ministers of the Church of Scientology.

According to the U.N., as many as 4 million people have fled Venezuela, which has been racked by economic depression and political chaos. Since March, Scientology Volunteer Ministers have been working with Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches and nonprofit organizations in the Colombian cities of Cúcuta and Villa del Rosario, preparing and serving meals, distributing supplies, and caring for the emotional and spiritual needs of the refugees.

In coordination with NGOs, the Fire Department and local government officials, Volunteer Ministers help orient those arriving to the services and resources available to them. They also provide relief from the trauma the refugees have suffered. And the training and seminars in simple life skills provided by the Volunteer Ministers help those seeking opportunity in Colombia cope with and better their circumstances and bring them new confidence and direction so they can turn their lives around.

In developing the Scientology Volunteer Minister program, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “A Volunteer Minister does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence. Rather, he is trained to handle these things and help others achieve relief from them and new personal strength as well.

“How does a Volunteer Minister accomplish these miracles? Basically, he uses the technology of Scientology to change conditions for the better—for himself, his family, his groups, friends, associates and for Mankind.”

The Church of Scientology Volunteer Minister program is a religious social service created in the mid-1970s. Anyone of any culture or creed may train as a Volunteer Minister and use these tools to help their families and communities. The Church provides free online training on the Volunteer Ministers website.

Watch films based on the tools of the Volunteer Minister on the Scientology Network.

Sarah Gad Hosts Campaign Job Fair, Helps Employ Dozens of Recently Incarcerated Constituents

Illinois congressional candidate Sarah Gad helps employ dozens of formerly incarcerated constituents through campaign job fair.

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chicago-based activist Sarah Gad recently joined the race for U.S. Congress in Illinois’ 1st district. The 32-year old democratic candidate launched her campaign last month with this powerful campaign video.

Gad's district encompasses the South Side of Chicago, an area plagued by disproportionately high levels of incarceration, poverty, and gun violence—all of which she says are inextricably linked⁠. "Our criminal justice system targets people of color and leaves them permanently disenfranchised, unable to find work, housing, or earn a living," she says.

This past Sunday, Gad's campaign hosted a job fair-style meet & greet for Chicago's reentry community. The four-hour job fair enlisted a variety of background-friendly employers—from Amazon to the U.S. Census—and concluded with 26 on the spot hires and dozens of additional interviews.

Gad says her campaign plans to host these job fairs on a recurring basis. "The unemployment situation out here is more dire than many people recognize," she says. "Finding stable employment is more than just about earning a living. It's also about staying off the streets and not getting killed."

Gad is a third-year law student at the prestigious University of Chicago Law School. She was awarded the 2019 University of Chicago Humanitarian Award for her advocacy work in the realm of civil rights and criminal justice reform. If elected, the 32-year old will become the nation's first formerly incarcerated female legislator.

Robert McDougal's Thoughts on Non-Native English Speakers Struggle To Receive A Proper Education in California

Robert McDougal Costa Mesa

COSTA MESA, CA, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Seasoned educator Robert McDougal expresses his strong views of California education.

Robert holds a master's degree in English Language Learning and TESOL certification. For years, Robert McDougal traveled across the US and Central America, educating others.

Robert McDougal's robust teaching history taught him a lot about the education system. He is now a language learning expert in Costa Mesa, CA.

Robert McDougal is especially passionate about helping non-native English speakers receive an education. He strives to help everyone reach their full potential.

Robert McDougal believes California is not doing enough to support native Spanish speakers. He feels the state needs to do more to include non-English speakers in its education system.

Robert says that English language learners often face many challenges. Some hurdles include experiencing education with unqualified teachers and limited learning environments.

The outcome of situations, like the ones listed, is never good. It causes non-native English students to struggle and develop a dependency on teachers.

The ability to gain real lessons and knowledge is unachievable.

Robert McDougal has much experience in the field of education.

He specializes in English instruction for native Spanish speakers. He is well-informed about the curriculum system and what it lacks.

"The California education system needs to improve greatly," says Robert McDougal.

He continues by saying, "It must better cater to the needs of ALL learners."

California has been among the states that tried to pass the law that schools teach in English only. Their efforts came true in 1998 when California voters enacted Proposition 227.

The Prop required California schools to teach in English only. Schools had to stop providing bilingual education programs.

In 2016, fortunately, this law changed.

California passed Prop 58, which undid Prop 227. The new Proposition allows school districts to present parents with native-speaking options.

Although Prop 58 wiped out much of Prop 227, Robert McDougal stresses this is not enough, and he would know.

Robert McDougal's experience includes classroom teaching and learning centers. He has worked at language institutes and individual tutoring hubs throughout Southern California.

Robert helps many learning facilities develop, edit, and expand their existing curriculum. He strives to help Spanish speakers receive a proper education. His changes to the curriculum better reflect the learning styles of every student.

Robert McDougal hopes California will do the same. The state needs to work towards improving inclusivity in education.

Robert McDougal's goal is for California's current education system to include aiding Spanish learners.

Laugh Factory Hosts 40th Annual Free Thanksgiving Day Feast with Top Comedians with Top Comedians

The Laugh Factory

“Spending the Holidays alone is no laughing matter.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The world-famous Laugh Factory will host its 40th annual free Thanksgiving Feasts on Thursday, November 28th. The Laugh Factory welcomes those away from home, those who might be lonely or simply in need of a warm meal, a hug or a laugh. Top comedians including Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Nealon, Shawn Wayans and other celebrities will help serve each guest a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Comics will perform live for them. On hand, welcoming guests at the door will be owner Jamie Masada.

“Spending the Holidays alone is no laughing matter,” says Masada.

The Laugh Factory encourages everyone to spread the word of the event. “Perhaps someone is bashful or there might be someone homeless in your neighborhood who needs a ride,” says Masada, “particularly at this difficult time, you might know of someone who has suffered, and whose children could use a warm holiday meal.” Last year over 2500 people were served and this year, the Laugh Factory is preparing for even more in Hollywood.

Every year since 1979, Masada has opened his club for Thanksgiving, dishing up free dinners to the homeless and up-and-coming artists, as well as providing some much-needed comedic relief. For his humanitarian effors, Masada has been recognized with numerous awards, including the NAACP Freedom Award, The Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and the ACLU Freedom of Speech Award, to name a few.

The Thanksgiving Day Feast will be held at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, California. The event starts at 1:00 p.m and be followed by a comedy show by the comedians previously listed.

Los Angeles, CA 90046

—————————————-

Masada, who founded the iconic Laugh Factory, has helped launch the careers of countless comedians including Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Ali Wong and Dave Chappelle. He is revered as a pioneer and innovator and is an iconic name on the comedy scene. His knowledge and expertise have made him the leading authority on all things comedy and his advice is highly regarded by the entertainment industry's top power brokers.

What exactly makes people laugh has been a life-long question for Jamie Masada. He has opened clubs in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Chicago and Las Vegas. He’s talked with comics and their friends; with doormen and tourists; with students and their professors about what they think it is that makes – or allows – people to laugh. One explanation he references, discussed at a college conference, involved what Shakespeare did. The plays were about history and tragedy and Kings and wars, but there was very often the presence of a commentator who made people laugh.
