IPS is an evidence-based model of supported employment for individuals age 16 and up who have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness (SMI) or a serious emotional disturbance (SED).

IPS utilizes and individualized approach to assess each participant’s skills, strengths, interests, and preferences. The IPS staff then assists a program participant in securing competitive, integrated employment with an employer who is a good match for their individual attributes.
