Adult Support Services
Individual Placement and Support (IPS):
IPS program, previously known as Supported Employment, is a holistic, recovery-based vocational rehabilitation approach for persons with severe mental illness that emphasizes helping people obtain competitive work in the community and providing the supports necessary to enhance continued success in the workplace.
Extensive evidence-based research has proven that IPS produces better outcomes for consumers than other vocational services. The agency works in collaboration with the Office of Rehab Services.
Mental Health Service/Sustaining Care:
This is a program designed to stabilize clients in their environment. All services are done in the community. To be eligible, one must be a former client now residing in a long-term care facility within our three-county area, a client who needs assistance in order to utilize social service programs in the community, or a client who needs occasional home visits to minimize the frequency of relapse into the acute stages of chronic mental illness, and to monitor the level of functioning.
