For Service Providers
Meaningful employment is known to improve the quality of life of people with serious mental health conditions, including those with co-occurring substance use disorders. For this reason, OhioMHAS strongly encourages behavioral agencies to offer Supported Employment (SE) services, including the evidence-based practice of SE, Individual Placement and Support (IPS)
Whether providers are just getting started or further developing existing employment services, OhioMHAS regional consultants are available to provide technical support and assistance. They can help with the stages of implementation for new programs, and with quality improvement and expansion of existing programs. They can also consult on the development of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) services and help providers achieve Qualified IPS SE status in Ohio.
