Join the Stepping Up partners for the fourth webinar in the “Six Questions” series, which will feature key strategies for conducting a comprehensive process analysis and inventory of services for people with mental illnesses in county jails. In every county, there are multiple points along the arrest-to-release continuum where an individual with mental illness could be identified and connected to services. Completing a comprehensive process analysis can help county leaders identify points within their systems where information can be better shared and individuals can be better connected to services to help reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jails. On this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of key strategies for conducting this type of analysis and how to use the results to identify opportunities for and gaps in connecting individuals to the services they need. Then, county officials will share how they have conducted such analyses and how they are using this information to inform their Stepping Up efforts.
