For Receiving Facilities


The Baker Act Reporting Center is contracted with the Department of Children and Families to analyze involuntary examination data. These Baker Act data are used to create a statutorily required annual report [F.S. 394.463(2)(a)3(e)], as well as additional reporting to address a variety of policy issues. 

This section of the website is intended for Baker Act receiving facilities to provide technical assistance as needed and address commonly asked questions.
