Stepping Up: Tracking Progress on Reducing the Number of People with Mental Illnesses in Jails

Oct. 12, 2017 , 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
Contact Nastassia Walsh (202) 942-4289

Join the Stepping Up partners for the sixth webinar in the “Six Questions” series, which will discuss how to track progress on the four key measures for reducing the number of people with mental illnesses in jail (the number of people with mental illnesses booked into jail, their length of stay in jail, connections to treatment and recidivism). Tracking progress helps to monitor completion of prioritized activities and can help justify continued or additional efforts and funding. On this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview on how to track progress, including how to develop a process for reporting on progress and how to evaluate programming implementation and impact on an ongoing basis. A county official will then share his or her team’s process for tracking progress and how it has helped the county’s efforts in the Stepping Up initiative. For further discussion on this topic, review the associated Stepping Up Network Call here.
