Agenda Item #8: The Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution accepting the designation of Marin County as a Stepping Up Initiative Innovator County. In 2017, the Board adopted a resolution supporting the "Stepping Up Initiative – Stepping Up to Reduce the Number of People with Mental Illnesses in Jails.” Stepping Up is a national effort to decrease the number of people with behavioral health disorders in jail. Marin County behavioral health and criminal justice partners have used the Stepping Up framework to adopt a validated mental health screening tool, improve data analysis, and provide behavioral health services in custody.
The Board adopted the resolution.
