IPS (Individual Placement and Support) Employment Support

IPS is the leading model of supported employment to help people with severe mental illness into work. It aims to help people find paid jobs with rapid job search within weeks of being referred to the service. Then it continues to work with both the employer and employee to sustain the job placement.

IPS is based on eight key principles. These include; a focus on competitive employment, rather than volunteering or sheltered work; zero exclusion, open to all who want to work; and close integration between Employment Specialists and mental health teams.
