Supes Stepping Up


Yavapai County Supervisor Jack R. Smith as Chairman of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors was honored to sign the proclamation joining the Stepping Up Initiative, a National Initiative to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jail.

The Stepping Up initiative is about creating a long-term, national movement—not a moment in time—to raise awareness of the factors contributing to the over-representation of people with mental illnesses in jails, and then using practices and strategies that work to drive those numbers down.
