OPPA and OPPF pleased to again support Ohio Stepping Up

The Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association and the Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Foundation are once again proud to support Ohio's Stepping Up.

The Stepping Up Initiative is a national effort to divert people with mental illness from jails and into treatment.  The campaign, both nationally, and in Ohio, brings together a powerful coalition of organizations and individuals, working together to reduce the number of people with illness in jails - which have become the de facto in-patient psychiatric facilities.
