CSSA Participates in May 7, 2015 Press Conference in Support of “Stepping Up,” a National Initiative to Reduce the Number of Mentally Ill in Jails 

 

Sacramento May 7, 2015 – Today, CSSA participated in a press conference hosted by the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) in support of a national initiative entitled, “Stepping Up” that is being launched this week. The goal of the initiative is to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jails. Stepping Up is co-sponsored by the Council on State Governments Justice Center, National Association of Counties, and American Psychiatric Association.

 

Speakers included Matt Cate, Executive Director – California State Association of Counties; Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens – CSSA Board Member and Major County Sheriffs’ Association 1st Vice President: Chief Probation Officer Mack Jenkins, San Diego County; Senator Robert Hertzberg, D-18th District; Darrell Steinberg, former California State Senate President Pro Tem; Dr. Renee Binder, President-Elect – American Psychiatric Association; Council Member Riki Hokama, Maui County – National Association of Counties President.

 

Stepping Up Initiative

The number of people with mental illnesses in U.S. jails has reached a crisis level. Those who deal with this problem every day agree that the current approach does little to improve public safety, stresses already strained budgets, and hurts people with mental illness and their loved ones. 

 

Stepping Up seeks to bring local and state stakeholders together around a common goal: to reduce the number of people with mental illness in jails. A collaboration between the National Association of Counties, the Council of State Governments Justice Center and the American Psychiatric Foundation, Stepping Up calls for key actions, including collecting data to determine the extent of the problem within each jail, developing a plan that draws on proven research to combat the problem, and designing an approach to track progress going forward. And everyone – from a local policymaker to a family member of a person with mental illness – can play a critical role in the initiative in bringing this issue to national attention.

IMPORTANT WARNING - PHONE SCAMS

 

The California State Sheriffs’ Association Foundation (CSSAF) has been recently advised that citizens have received suspicious phone calls that appear to be coming from either our main number 916.375.8000 or our fax number 916.375.8017. This scam involves callers posing as law enforcement and threatening legal action if you do not pay them. If you receive any suspicious calls, DO NOT give out any personal information, such as social security number, bank account numbers, etc., and report these calls to your local law enforcement agency immediately.

 

Please be advised that the California State Sheriffs’ Association Foundation does not solicit by phone.
