Upcoming NACo Webinars
March 1, 2018
The National Association of Counties (NACo) is hosting two upcoming webinars that might be of interest to California Counties, and especially to people dealing with health and behavioral health care in jails.
Integrating Value-Based Care into County Health and Justice Systems
NACo is hosting a webinar, Integrating Value-Based Care into County Health and Justice System, on Wednesday, March 14 at 11:00 am. The purpose of the webinar is to learn how county health and criminal justice system can develop a framework for integrating a value-based care model, ultimately reducing recidivism and improving individual outcomes. A panel of experts from Johnson County, Kansas, will share their experience in developing and implementing programs designed to effectively manage the behavioral health of their justice-involved population, as well as their experience participating in NACo’s Stepping Up initiative.

NACo is hosting a second webinar, Stepping Up: Communicating About Your Efforts to Reduce the Number of People with Mental Illness in Jails, on Thursday, March 15 from 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm. During this webinar, county leaders will learn from national experts and their peers about strategies for engaging the public and media around Stepping Up efforts, including key messaging points and how to engage individuals with mental illnesses and their families to gain support for these efforts. Participants will also hear an update about the national Stepping Up Day of Action and how to get involved in hosting their own local events.
