BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

May 16th marks the third anniversary of the Stepping Up Initiative, a national program led by NACo to reduce the number of individuals with mental illness in jail and increase access to behavioral health services.  Mecklenburg County has long worked towards these goals and formally adopted a resolution in support of the Stepping Up Initiative in June 2016.  We respectfully request that the Mecklenburg County Board of County Commissioners adopt the Stepping Up Day of Action proclamation to celebrate the anniversary of this initiative, reaffirm the County’s support of the goals of the Stepping Up Initiative, and encourage County officials, employees and residents to participate in the Day of Action Open House planned for the morning of May 16th in the CMGC.
