Participants in an Individual Placement and Support (IPS) program are three times more likely to work in regular, competitive jobs than those in other vocational programs.

The evidence-based practices in Supported Employment will give you the knowledge and tools born from the IPS model to help clients with mental health disorders obtain jobs with competitive wages based on their field of interest. With the step-by-step program offered in this user-friendly manual and CD-ROM, professionals develop the skills to

  • conduct interviews and assessments using clients' personal histories, family networks, and clinical records
  • create individualized job search plans and provide support without vocational tests, work samples, or other red tape
  • develop an ongoing process for clients to try out jobs in the community
  • offer supporting education
  • collaborate with other practitioners to plot the best course of action for the individual
  • provide ongoing job support for as long as each client wants help
  • work with clients with co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders
  • enhance clients lives, promote wellness, and reduce stigma.
