Hosted by the National Association of Counties, with support from The Council of State Governments Justice Center and the American Psychiatric Association Foundation
Date: Thursday, April 26
Time: 2–3:15 p.m. ET
Join the Stepping Up partners for a webinar about engaging people who have mental illnesses and their families in your county’s Stepping Up planning efforts. While counties across the country have committed to creating data-driven, systems-level plans to reduce the number of people who have mental illnesses in their jails, engaging these individuals can help your county garner further support for its planning efforts, receive advice on key strategies, and ensure that their stories are heard.
During this webinar, an expert from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and county representatives will describe strategies for meaningfully including people who have mental illnesses and their families in your Stepping Up efforts.
