Supported Employment in Ohio Gets Boost with Training Series

The State of Ohio continues to expand its commitment to employment for people with severe mental illness, and the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University is helping to make this happen with consulting and evaluation services and a statewide training series. The events are designed for organizations implementing Supported Employment/Individual Placement and Support (SE/IPS), the evidence-based practice.

There are 26 components to the SE/IPS model, which offers people rapid job-search services, personal choice for part-time or full-time work in competitive jobs in the community (not sheltered workshops), benefits planning, and much more. SE/IPS improves outcomes for people with mental illness. It is endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) (learn more).
