    Stepping Up and Connections to Care: Making the Case with Data

    Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, the American Psychiatric Association Foundation, the National Association of Counties, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance

    Counties across the country have made progress addressing the Stepping Up Four Key Measures. Yet counties often struggle with Key Measure 3: post-release connections to care for people who have a serious mental illness. This measure necessarily involves a handoff from the county jail system to the community-based behavioral health system, with implications for data collection and treatment initiation. This webinar will feature representatives from the Stepping Up initiative and Johnson County, Kansas, who will discuss the importance of tracking data on this key measure and how counties can set up systems to track this data accurately.
