Stepping Up: How NAMI is Working with Counties and States to Get People with Mental Illness Out of Jails and Into Treatment. People with mental illness cycle through jails in alarming numbers, with tragic and costly outcomes. Finally, a historic partnership among the National Association of Counties, the Council of State Governments, NAMI and numerous law enforcement and mental health organizations is taking on this trend. The initiative aims to bring together local teams in counties across the country to reduce the number of people with mental illness in jails. Learn more about the initiative and how peers, law enforcement and state and county leaders are leading the way.
