    Stepping Up: Conducting Timely Mental Health Screening and Assessment in Jails

    Join the Stepping Up partners for the second webinar in the Six Questions series, which will feature key strategies for conducting timely screening and assessments for mental health and substance use in jails. To reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jail, counties need to have a clear and accurate understanding of the prevalence of these disorders within their jail populations. This requires universal screening of every person booked into jail for mental illnesses, as well as other behavioral health needs, such as substance use. On this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of key strategies from the Six Questions report for effectively and consistently identifying people with mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders in county jails and how to appropriately share this information. Then, county officials will share how they have implemented screening and assessment processes in their jails and discuss the benefits of these tools. For further discussion on this topic, review the associated Stepping Up Network Call here.
