The People

Many of the people on the frontlines of this issue—from those living with mental illnesses to those working in the criminal justice and behavioral health systems —have experienced struggles and successes that highlight the impact of the problem and the complexities of addressing it. The Stepping Up Initiative has developed a series stories to amplify those themes. You can also see these and other stories at Stepping Up’s official Huffington Post blog.
