Stepping Up was launched in May 2015 to address the prevalence of people who have mental illnesses in jails and provide counties with resources to create sustainable, data-driven plans to impact this crisis. Since Stepping Up's launch, more than 420 counties have passed a resolution or proclamation committing to acting on this issue. On May 16, 2018, Stepping Up is hosting a national Day of Action, during which counties are encouraged to hold an event or participate in local activities to share with constituents the progress they have made toward reducing the number of people who have mental illnesses in their jails, raise public awareness and understanding of this important issue, and emphasize their commitment to creating data-driven, systems-level changes to policy and practice to achieve their Stepping Up goals. Join your peers in hosting an event in your community. More details and a toolkit to help you plan your Day of Action are available at StepUpTogether.org.
