More than 350 counties have passed a resolution to join Stepping Up: A National Initiative to Reduce the Number of People with Mental Illnesses in Jails. To support counties in their efforts, NACo is hosting a two-part Stepping Up Summit to provide counties with the tools and resources they need to further their initiatives. Part One will focus on providing an overview of strategies counties are using to identify people with mental illnesses in their jails and how they are using this information to inform policies, practices and funding allocations. All counties are welcome to attend the summit.
ConferenceThe NACo Annual Conference & Exposition is the only meeting that draws a cross section of elected officials and county staff from across the country.
