Working for Recovery: Implementing the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Supported Employment Model
Recovery is a journey, and for many people with severe mental illness, returning to work is an essential part of that journey. At the 24th Annual STEP Symposium, we will present the the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model, which is the evidence-based approach to helping people succeed in competitive employment.
Mental wellness and recovery go well beyond medications and therapy; as with housing, employment is a critical part of many individuals’ recovery plans.
Objectives: The information presented at this educational activity should improve your ability to:
• Discuss the key aspects of IPS Supported Employment.
• Review successes and challenges of IPS implementation in NC.
• Understand how employment can be as important to one’s recovery
as other more traditional therapies.
