Register for Webinar: Addressing Housing Needs of People in the Criminal Justice System Who Have Mental Illnesses

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, Nov. 9
Time: 2–3:15 p.m. ET

Join the Stepping Up partners for a webinar about evidence-based strategies for addressing housing needs for people who have mental illnesses and have had contact with the criminal justice system. During this webinar, a national expert from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) will provide an overview of the Frequent Users Systems Engagement (FUSE) model, a data-driven approach to creating and implementing supportive housing for high-need populations that cycle through jails, shelters, and other crisis services. County officials from Johnson County, Iowa, and Harris County, Texas, will then share their progress with implementing this model as part of their Stepping Up efforts.

The webinar will be followed on Thursday, Nov. 16, by a Stepping Up Network Call, which will involve an in-depth discussion of this information.
