The Individual Placement and Support (IPS) approach to supported employment for adults diagnosed with serious mental illness has existed for over three decades and is considered the gold standard evidence-based practice. This webinar will begin with a review of the IPS approach – including its principles, practices, and importance- and discuss its implementation across New York State over the course of the past decade. The focus will then shift to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on IPS implementation, examining data including employment outcomes and fidelity. Survey results provided by 88 NYS implementation sites will be shared, focusing on adaptations and innovations reported. Participants will also review information reported by the IPS WORKS international learning community, focusing on changes made with IPS implementation by its member sites. This will lead to a discussion about the lasting impact of these adaptations on IPS implementation in the post-pandemic era.
