IPS & Employment

The majority of people with mental health problems want to work, but often the support they need is not available. We're finding ways to fix this through expanding the use of what we know works across the country.

The most successful method of supporting people with mental health difficulties into work is Individual Placement and Support (IPS). IPS finds people a job quickly and then provides time-unlimited support to keep the job and manage their mental health.

You can also learn more about our Centres of Excellence; access tools for online job-seeking or support to return to employment.
