New Tool for Counties to Assess Their Set, Measure, Achieve Progress

October 25, 2022

The Stepping Up partners have released a new resource, the Set, Measure, Achieve Progress Survey, for counties interested in tracking and sharing progress toward their goals for Set, Measure, Achieve, the Stepping Up initiative’s latest call to action. The survey is a companion to the Set, Measure, Achieve brief released in 2020, which explains how counties can set targets for reducing the number of people with serious mental illnesses in their jails, measure progress toward meeting these targets, and achieve results.

With this new tool, counties participating in Set, Measure, Achieve will be able to log their baseline data on one or more of the Stepping Up four key measures and track their individual progress. After completing the survey, counties will receive a customized summary of their data from the CSG Justice Center. Any time a county fills out the survey again, they will receive a new, individualized report.

Note that all county data will be kept confidential; the Stepping Up partners will never share individual county data without express permission from the county.
