Supported Employment: Individual Placement and Support (SEIPS) is a three year pilot program – for Transition Age Youth (TAY) ages 18-25. The program utilizes the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) evidence-based model as an additional service to youth already enrolled in the Full Service Partnership (FSP) or the Recovery, Resilience and Reintegration (RRR) program.
IPS assists individuals with mental illness and helps them to obtain and maintain employment. These services are available to individuals who are interested in employment and are centered on the client’s preference of type of employment. Services include: job development and placement, benefits counseling (Social Security or other cash benefits that they may be receiving) and individualized support to help maintain employment. These employment services are integrated into services within the individual’s mental health treatment plan. SEIPS is also able to offer vocational placement and support to assist youth in developing the skills and knowledge to pursue competitive employment.
