Overview of Supported Employment

This course is an overview of Individual Placements and Supports, an evidence-based practice. The course is for mental health agency directors, case managers, clinical staff, vocational rehabilitation practitioners and counselors. It outlines the proven way of providing supports in competitive employment for individuals with significant mental health issues. This is the first in a series of three courses that will give you the history, definitions, and principles of both Individual Placements and Supports (IPS), and Evidence-Based Practices (EBP). The course will give you evidence of the success of IPS in numbers of jobs, hours worked, and customer satisfaction. You will learn that unemployment is much worse for people with severe mental illness than the stress of work. You will learn about the recent changes in the mental health system and how the consumer recovery movement, the community supports model of PACT, evidence-based practices and supported employment came together to form IPS. You will also learn what particular qualities make IPS an evidence-based practice and what features make IPS a leading model for replication. This course concludes with an overview on developing a program and a description of the most used funding options.
