The Stepping Up Initiative

Mission: The mission of the Alamance County Stepping Up Task Force is to reduce the number of persons with mental illness or co-occurring and substance use who are involved with the criminal justice system.

Vision: We envision a community that respects, supports, and embraces persons with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance dependence, and whose systems of health and behavioral health, law enforcement, justice, human services, public safety, and advocates work together in a deliberate and coordinated fashion to optimize the level of services provided for them and minimize their level of incarceration in the county detention center.
