Orange County 2nd Annual Healthy Minds Healthy Lives Community Resource Event
On May 19th 2012, Orange County Government (Wraparound Orange / The Oaks Community Intervention Program, the Orange County Juvenile Justice Council and other Youth and Family Services Programs) in addition to the Department of Juvenile Justice (Circuit 9) sponsored the “2nd Annual Healthy Minds Healthy Lives Event.” The overall goal of the event was to educate the community on the various social services available throughout Orange County. Approximately 400 adults and children attended this free event. The community resource event was held during Mental Health Awareness Month in May and was facilitated at Barnett Park on the west side of Orlando in zip codes 32808 and 32818 which has the highest juvenile delinquency rate in the state. The event included forty (40) social service vendors who provided the public with information related to mental health services, delinquency prevention, mentoring, substance abuse counseling, and dependency information.
During the event, Orange County Fire Rescue grilled hotdogs and hamburgers for the public. The Department of Juvenile Justice, the Orange County Youth Shelter, and the Orange County Oaks Community Intervention Program and other agencies provided twenty-three (23) juvenile probation officers and various staff members to assist with set-up and the preparation of the event. The event also allowed sixty-seven (67) youths to earn community service work hours for their assistance throughout the day. The youths completed various tasks which included disposing of trash, table set-up, and distributing food and drinks to members of the public. Cumulatively, a total of 469 hours of community service were performed during the event by juveniles under the supervision of the Department of Juvenile Justice or the Oaks Program.

The C11 Juvenile Justice Board held its board retreat in December 2011 which turned out approximately 60 participants. Participants included Circuit 11 Juvenile Justice Board members, Representative Cynthia Stafford, Representative Luis Garcia, Mayor Phillip Stoddard, Mayor Myra Taylor, DJJ Prevention Providers, The Children’s Trust, representatives from the school Board, representatives from the Juvenile Services Department, various police municipalities, Miami-Dade Public Schools administrators and community-based organizations. Probation staff also assisted with facilitating breakout sessions. Positive feedback was received from those in attendance.
The breakout sessions focused on data to determine what the data tells about how things are progressing in the area; strengths currently in place that contribute to help things get better; barriers and challenges that have negatively impacted the topic of discussion, identification of action steps necessary to achieve measurable results in each of the topic areas; to develop strategies/action recommendations. The recommendations from the breakout sessions coincide with the current Circuit Board Prevention Plan Goals.
