    Stepping Up 101: A Primer for Veterans Justice Outreach Specialists

    In jurisdictions across the country, veterans and people with mental illnesses who are incarcerated have unique service needs, and it can be difficult for correctional facilities to serve them effectively. This webinar will provide an overview of the crisis of mental illness in jail systems and discuss how the Stepping Up initiative can help counties reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in their jails. In addition, the webinar will provide estimates of the number of incarcerated veterans and present an example of how Veterans Justice Outreach specialists can facilitate linkages to services for veterans with mental illnesses in Stepping Up counties. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the webinar.

    NACo is grateful to Smart Justice sponsor Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems, Inc. for its support of this webinar.
