The Stepping Up Initiative

Stepping Up

The National Association of Counties (NACo), the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Foundation have come together to lead a national initiative to help advance counties’ efforts to reduce the number of adults with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders in jails. With support from the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and other sponsors, the initiative will build on the many innovative and proven practices being implemented across the country.
