Join the Stepping Up partners for the fourth webinar in the Six Questions series, which will focus on key strategies for conducting a comprehensive process analysis and inventory of services for people with mental illnesses in county jails.

In every county, there are multiple points along the arrest-to-release continuum where a person with a mental illness could be connected to services. Completing a comprehensive process analysis can help county leaders identify points within their systems where information can be better shared and people can be better connected to services to help reduce the prevalence of mental illness in jails.

During this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of key strategies for conducting this type of analysis and how to use the results to identify opportunities for and gaps in connecting people to the services they need. A county official will also share how their county has conducted such analyses and how they are using this information to inform their Stepping Up efforts. The webinar will be followed on Thursday, July 6, by the fourth Stepping Up Network Call, which will facilitate an in-depth discussion about this information.
