Hosted by the National Association of Counties, with support from The Council of State Governments Justice Center and the American Psychiatric Association Foundation
Join the Stepping Up partners for the second webinar in the Six Questions series, which will feature key strategies for conducting timely screening and assessments for people with mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders in jails. Timely screenings and assessments are essential for knowing the number of people with mental illnesses in jails, which helps counties develop strategies to reduce prevalence accordingly. During this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of key strategies from the Six Questions publication for effectively and consistently identifying people with mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders in county jails and how to appropriately share this information. County officials will share how they have implemented screening and assessment processes in their jails and discuss the benefits of these tools.
