Upcoming Opportunities

July 21-24, 2017: The National Association of Counties' (NACo) Annual Conference

The NACo Annual Conference & Exposition is the only meeting that draws a cross section of elected officials and county staff from across the country.  Attendees from rural and urban counties, large and small budgets and staff- all come together for four days of education, networking, and sessions aimed to help improve residents’ lives and the efficiency of county government.

On Sunday, July 23, NACo is hosting a two-part Stepping Up Summit to provide conference attendees with the tools and resources they need to further their initiatives. Part One will highlight two counties doing innovative work around identifying people with mental illnesses in jails and establishing baseline prevalence data. Part Two will share best practices from four counties (including Delaware County, Ohio!) on how to effectively implement policies and programs around the four key measures for reducing the number of people with mental illnesses in jails. The two-part summit will be followed by a Stepping Up networking reception. Conference registration is open, and anyone who registers to attend the Annual Conference is welcome to attend all Stepping Up activities.


November 2, 2017: Building the AOT Community: A Symposium for Beginners, Experts and Those in Between

FREE Event funded by the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation.  Assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) – sometimes known as “court-ordered outpatient treatment” or “outpatient commitment” – is the practice of placing individuals with severe mental illness and a history of struggling with voluntary treatment adherence under court order to follow a prescribed treatment plan while living in the community. Across the nation and here in Ohio, studies have shown that AOT can dramatically improve treatment outcomes and substantially reduce the likelihood of repeat hospitalization and criminal justice involvement for its target population.
