This is an all hands on deck call for advocacy. The trauma is unfolding as we speak. I received the following texts over the past 24 hours. This is reprinted with permission. The mother is Martha Marti. Her son's is Dino Marti. The circumstances are dire. They are desperate for any advocacy expertise or assistance you might offer:

Dino is being held involuntarily ('Baker Acted') at St. Anthony’s Hospital, 1200 7th Avenue N.,
in St. Petersburg, FL. 33705

Phone:
(727) 825-1100 (Emergency Dept)
