In Focus: Conducting a Comprehensive Process Analysis is a new brief from the Stepping Up partners that presents counties with steps for examining how people who have serious mental illnesses (SMI) move through a county’s criminal justice and behavioral health systems. A process analysis can help counties determine appropriate pathways for people with SMI, identify what resources exist across systems for this population, and determine how much relevant data is available and where more data is needed to track Stepping Up’s four key measures.

This brief is one of a series of companion products designed to provide counties with further guidance on how to apply the Stepping Up framework Reducing the Number of People with Mental Illnesses in Jail: Six Questions County Leaders Need to Ask.
