Individual Placement and Support Supported Employment
Individual Placement and Support Supported Employment (IPS Supported Employment) is an evidenced based model that helps people who have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness find work. IPS Supported Employment distinguishes itself from standard supported employment by using specific fidelity measures to achieve high employment outcomes. This model helps people gain employment in community based, integrated employment settings that pay minimum wage or above.
Some of the distinguishing features of the IPS Supported Employment model include a zero exclusion, rapid job search that emphasizes job diversity and development, time unlimited supports and working closely with mental health treatment teams. Community Network Services, Easter Seals and Training and Treatment Innovations have all adopted the IPS Supported Employment model. Please click on the links below to visit their websites.
