The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center is hosting a virtual Community of Practice focused on positioning Stepping Up counties for success in Set, Measure, Achieve, the Stepping Up initiative’s latest call to action. Set, Measure, Achieve encourages counties to establish and reach measurable goals that demonstrate reduced prevalence of serious mental illness (SMI) in jails. The Community of Practice will be led by CSG Justice Center policy and research staff, with featured presentations from peer counties. Participants will have opportunities for mutual learning and dialogue and will receive assistance in using the Stepping Up Set, Measure, Achieve County Progress Tool, which will allow counties to track their progress and analyze their data.
Upon completion of the Community of Practice, participants will be equipped with strategies they can use in their own communities to guide data collection and analysis efforts, with the ultimate goal of reducing the number of people with SMI who come into contact with the justice system.
These sessions will be held in partnership with the National Association of Counties and the American Psychiatric Association Foundation, with funding support from the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation.
