Event Details

Over 60% of people with serious mental illness express an interest in employment yet less than 20% are employed, and only 2% have access to effective employment services. The evidence-based approach to supported employment, also known as Individual Placement and Support (IPS), includes 27 randomized controlled trials demonstrating that two to three times more people gain employment with IPS support when compared to usual stepwise employment services. In addition, many people and especially young adults want further education or training to advance their work lives. This webinar includes a description of supported employment and supported education principles and practices, a brief overview of the research, and identification of the roles of mental health practitioners, employment and education specialists, Vocational Rehabilitation counselors, family members, employers and educators to support people’s work and school efforts.

Presenter: Deborah Becker, M.Ed, Westat
