Stepping Up and Prop 47 Planning Meeting

Please join us for the next Stepping Up community meeting on November 19th at 9:00am. The meeting will be held in the Empire Room in the Eric Rood Administrative Building. We will be sharing the draft of our Sequential Intercept Map that many of you helped create at the last community meeting and soliciting feedback. This map will then serve as a strategic guide for our work towards the Stepping Up goal of keeping people with mental illness and substance use disorder out of the jails and criminal justice system. This process will be most effective if we have good representation from a broad sector of the community – so please invite your friends, colleagues and co-workers!

Sequential Intercept Mapping is a cross-system approach to strengthening local strategies to implement core services that will address behavioral health, criminogenic, and social factors for justice-involved persons with mental illness. The goals are to aid communities in developing effective systems of care that bridge criminal justice and mental health services and minimize criminal justice involvement for persons with mental illness. Sequential Intercept Mapping promotes stakeholder collaboration by tying existing efforts together from pre-arrest through re-entry; identifying strengths and gaps; addressing issues relevant across all intercepts (e.g., culture, gender, trauma, and needs of veterans) and identifying solutions, many of which do not add costs.

This group will also serve as the Local Advisory Committee for the Proposition 47 Grant Program. Prop 47 is a competitive grant program that awards funds to public agencies to provide mental health services, substance use disorder treatment, and/or diversion programs for those in the criminal justice system. Nevada County was awarded $1 million for a 3-year program that focuses on people experiencing homelessness who are coming into frequent contact with the justice system and can benefit from behavioral health services. The County has partnered with several community providers to enact this program
