Retired Ohio Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, Project Director for Stepping Up Ohio, shared how this national program is tackling the serious issues of jails being the de facto mental health institutions for those with mental illness.

She explained how this program, and Ohio’s version, is trying to change that scenario so that these persons no longer cycle through jailand can be stabilized in the community with services that are far less costly and more effective.

 

 

The webinar covered:

 Background and statistics on the issue of jails and mental illness
 Stepping Up: what is it all about and Ohio’s version
 Forming the state and community partnerships to make it work
 Practical tools and solutions, many costing little or no money.
 Lessons learned on how to break the cycle
 Challenge to audience to create their own solutions and how to do so
