Supported Employment (SE), the evidence-based practice, is designed to help people diagnosed with mental illness find a regular job of their choice in the community. SE is different from traditional vocational rehabilitation approaches. It emphasizes rapid job-search and placement services, among other consumer-centered principles and practices. It does not require pre-employment training or workshops.

SE was created and is studied by researchers Deborah R. Becker, MEd, CRC, and Robert E. Drake, MD, PhD, and their colleagues at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center (PRC) of Dartmouth Medical School. SE is also known as Individual Placement & Support (IPS). More information about SE is available on this website.
