Stepping Up Toolkit Can Help Address Mentally Ill in Jail
December 14, 2017
The Stepping Up partners have combined a series of webinars and network calls about the ”Six Questions” into the Stepping Up Resources Toolkit. It’s based on the Six Questions County Leaders Need to Ask to reduce the number of people with mental illness in jails, which outline a framework for counties to use to address this issue.
Throughout 2017, the Stepping Up partners hosted a series of webinars and network calls focusing on each of the Six Questions. Each webinar is led by a national expert who outlines key strategies pertaining to that question, as well as county officials who provide examples of how their counties have implemented or shown progress toward implementing that question.
All slides and video recordings of the webinars are available by clicking on the links below.
