Message From Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. For us at the Clerk’s Office, it’s an opportunity to share information about the many resources that are available to those in need in Central Florida. Because of the nature of our work, we are acutely aware of the impact of mental illness in the community. The results of mental illness are never more evident than in our Mental Health Division, where our deputy clerks maintain court records when proceedings are held to determine the capacity or incapacity of an adult. 

Mental illness is a growing concern for our community and I am proud of my deputy clerks who work hard every day to assist families navigating the justice system in this difficult and delicate matter. 

To recognize Mental Health Awareness, our office is using the month of May to promote positive mental health through our Global Employee Health & Fitness Month initiative. Whether its physical exercise, such as team walks around downtown, or a special presentation by the Mental Health Association of Central Florida, our employees are given a wide variety of resources to help them maintain a positive mental health. 

Our organization continues to serve on the board of the Mental Health Association of Central Florida and are a proud sponsor of their annual Legacy of Champions Luncheon. We will continue to strive to maintain strong partnerships with key stakeholders in the community who work hard day in and day out assisting the citizens of Orange County in coping with their mental health issues.

Until next time, 


Tiffany Moore Russell
Orange County Clerk of Courts​​​​
