Join the Live Webcast of the Stepping Up Summit

Proceedings of the Stepping Up Summit in Washington, DC on April 18-19 will be available as a webcast at stepuptogether.org/.  The summit is an important step in an effort to create a long-term movement to raise awareness about the number of people with mental illness in jails and to promote practices and strategies that drive the numbers down. The National Association of Counties, the Council of State Governments Justice Center, and the American Psychiatric Association Foundation created the Stepping Up Initiative in 2015.

Of special interest to Dane County will be these presentations:

  • A Vision for Reducing the Number of People with Mental Illness in Jail

  • Strategies for Financing Your Plan, and
  • Federal Investment and Support .
