Stepping Up: Addressing Housing Needs of People with Mental Illnesses in Jails

Nov. 9, 2017 , 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
Contact Nastassia Walsh (202) 942-4289

Join the Stepping Up partners for a webinar to discuss evidence-based strategies for addressing housing needs for people with mental illnesses who have had contact with the justice system. Stepping Up counties that are asking the Six Questions locally may be running into a common issue: the prevalence of homelessness among people with mental illnesses in jails and a lack of housing options for this most vulnerable population in their communities. This webinar will feature CSH’s FUSE model, which is a data-driven approach to creating and implementing supportive housing for high utilizers/frequent users of jails, shelters and other crisis services. County officials will then share their processes and progress with implementing these models. The webinar will be followed up by the Stepping Up Network Call for a deeper dive on the same topic on November 16, 2017, at 2pm ET.
