    Stepping Up: Key Considerations for Reducing Mental Illness in Jails

    Counties are “Stepping Up” to reduce mental illness in their jails. Two challenges that people with mental illnesses face before, after and during their involvement with the justice system is right to counsel and access to housing. Both of these factors can have a significant impact on whether a person is arrested, how long he or she remains in jail, and his or her success after release. During this roundtable, national experts and county practitioners will discuss challenges and opportunities and outline how changing the provision of these services can help to reduce jail populations, save money and ensure the safety.
