Stepping Up County Self-Assessment

The Stepping Up County Self-Assessment is designed to assist counties interested in evaluating the status of their current efforts to reduce the prevalence of people who have mental illnesses in jails.

The online tool guides counties to determine their implementation progress according to the framework detailed in Reducing the Number of People with Mental Illnesses in Jail: Six Questions County Leaders Need to Ask. Counties that use the tool will also have access to online resources to help advance their work in areas where they have not fully implemented identified best practices.

Please contact info@stepuptogether.org with any questions about the tool.
