    Stepping Up: Establishing Baseline Data for Mental Illness in Jails

    Join the Stepping Up partners for the third webinar in the Six Questions series, which will feature key strategies for establishing baseline data on the number of people with mental illnesses in county jails. To reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jails, counties need to have a clear and accurate understanding of the prevalence of mental illnesses and other behavioral health disorders within their jail populations. Baseline data highlight where some of the best opportunities exist to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in the jail and provide benchmarks against which progress can be measured. On this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of the four data measures for people with mental illnesses in jails from the Six Questions report: admissions, average length of stay, community connections and recidivism. Then, county officials will share how they are calculating baseline data across these four measures and how they are using this information to inform their Stepping Up efforts. For further discussion on this topic, review the associated Stepping Up Network Call here.
