Florida revises law on involuntary child psychiatric evaluations

Suicide prevention has been a focus in recent years, as is preventing the type of mass shootings that appear all-too frequently on the news across the country.

These evaluations temporarily remove children perceived to be a danger to themselves or others and provides them a full psychiatric evaluation to determine if there are any mental health issues.
