This month, the Stepping Up initiative launched a national effort to help counties collect accurate, accessible data on people entering their jails who have serious mental illnesses. As part of the effort, seven Innovator Counties have been selected as models for their expertise in accurately identifying these individuals and consistently collecting data on them.

The Stepping Up partners will host a livestreamed workshop at the National Association of Counties’ Western Interstate Region Conference. During this workshop, Stepping Up leaders will discuss the initiative’s intentions to help every county strengthen its data-collection efforts and Innovator Counties will discuss strategies that have worked in their jurisdictions.
