Join the Stepping Up partners for the sixth webinar in the Six Questions series. During this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of how to track progress on reducing the prevalence of mental illnesses in jails using four key measures: the number of people who have mental illnesses that are booked into jail, their length of stay in jail, connections to treatment, and recidivism. A county official from Maricopa County, Arizona, will then share his/her team’s method for tracking progress and how it has helped the county’s Stepping Up efforts.

The webinar will be followed on Thursday, Oct. 19, by the sixth Stepping Up Network Call, which will involve an in-depth discussion of this information.
