Criminal Justice Behavioral Health

PROGRAM Overview

Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare brings together individuals from the criminal justice and behavioral health systems to implement the Stepping Up framework. This framework is intended to develop cross-systems and data-driven strategies that can lead to measurable reductions in the number of people with mental illness who are in our local jails.

Stepping Up was launched in May 2015 by the National Association of Counties (NACo), The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, and the American Psychiatric Association Foundation (APA Foundation) to mobilize local, state, and national leaders to develop system-level changes to policy and practice to achieve the Stepping Up goals.
