The League of Women Voters of Sanibel invites the public to join a virtual conversation Jan. 21 with Charlotte Nycklemoe.

As a mother of daughters diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illnesses, Nycklemoe is aware the Florida Juvenile Justice system is in great need of reform. Her personal witness of the critical events that cause family and societal hardships have given her impetus to fight for the rights of the mentally ill.

Her experiences led to a directorship on the State Board of the National Association of Mental Illness, MN, and chairmanship of its Legislative Committee. Convinced that behavioral health is intertwined with at-risk kids behavior and juvenile delinquency, Nycklemoe is utilizing her leadership skills and knowledge in chairing the League of Women Voters of Florida Juvenile Delinquency Action Committee. She is also on the board of Directors of the Florida State League.

In her presentation, Nycklemoe will share the issues which will be discussed at the upcoming Legislative session on behalf of the citizenry of Florida. Her goal is to do all she can to help misdirected, at-risk kids to become productive members of society.

This will be an important presentation for anyone concerned with the overall health and well being of our kids. There will be plenty of time for attendees to ask questions via the Chat room function on Zoom. To register, RSVP to lwvsanibel@gmail.com. Following registration a confirmation email and information about joining the Zoom event will be sent.
