A National Summit as part of Stepping Up
from The Stepping Up Initiative
The National Summit provides an opportunity for county teams to create or advance the specificity and impact of county plans to reduce the prevalence of mental illness in jails by building on existing strengths and addressing system gaps. The National Summit will focus on key themes that have an impact on counties across the Nation. These themes include what drives of the overrepresentation of people with mental illnesses in jails; what are evidence-based policies and practices for reducing these numbers; and what mechanisms counties can use to bring innovative programs to scale in their jurisdictions.
