In partnership with Mental Health Employment Partnership, this one day workshop for service providers is an opportunity for a range of existing IPS service providers and prospective providers to come together and share learning from recent IPS implementation around the UK, and to share learning on some of the key implementation challenges within IPS services.

The intended key outcomes are to:

  • Share learning from Mental Health Employment Partnership (MHEP) projects one year on and commissioning perspectives on IPS expansion
  • Share learning from leading IPS providers and working together on common IPS implementation issues
