In the course of a year, approximately 2 million people with mental illness are admitted to jails in the United States. Since jails are not equipped to provide effective mental health and substance-abuse treatment, symptoms frequently worsen during incarceration; people reenter communities without the services and supports necessary for recovery and are at high risk of recidivism. NAMI is involved in an exciting initiative called Stepping Up with the Council of State Governments, National Association of Counties, American Psychiatric Association, Major Sheriffs Association and others to address this disturbing and unnecessary crisis. Learn more about this important initiative and the strategies being used in select communities to reduce the unnecessary criminalization of people with mental illness, and learn what you can do to impact your communities. - Sam Cochran, M.S., Major, Shelby County Sheriff's Department and Co-Chair, CIT International Board of Directors, Memphis, Tenn. - Nancy Jackson, Ph.D., M.A., Commissioner, Arapahoe County, Littleton, Colo. - Ray Lay, Wrap Facilitator and Volunteer Peer Specialist, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Member, Board of Directors, NAMI Indiana, Indianapolis - Fred Osher, M.D., Director of Health Systems and Services Policy, Council of State Governments, Johns Island, S.C. - Moderator: Ron Honberg, J.D., Senior Policy Advisor, NAMI, Arlington, Va.
