Evaluation of an implementation strategy for individual Placement and Support for adults with severe mental illness (WC2014-004)

Background

Starting date: 11/08/2014

People with severe mental illness show high rates of work disability and unemployment. A substantial number of these people however, does have a wish to work.

Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is an effective method to place people with severe mental illness in competitive jobs. 

Currently, in the Netherlands IPS is only modestly being used as intervention method. Financial and organisational issues form a barrier for a wide spread implementation.
