People with mental health problems often want to be working but don't know how to go about it or need support to make it happen. If they do want to work, then the most effective method of helping them to do so is Individual Placement and Support (IPS). IPS has been proven more effective than the traditional approach of getting people into work, which involves training, development and sheltered work before placing the person in paid employment. IPS gets people into competitive employment first with training and support on the job, and has been proven to be 2-3 times more effective.
