IPS Supported Employment Programs for People With Behavioral Health Issues
People with behavioral health issues may be able to find jobs, but due to the nature of their mental health issues, may find it difficult to maintain employment. In recent years, recognition of this issue has led to the development of programs support these individuals. Programs are designed to help people understand the triggers and obstacles that confront them to allow sustained success in employment.
Please note the organizations listed through the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services have supported employment programs for people with mental health services, but you must be a client to receive services. Additional Supported Employment services may be available through Managed Care Organizations, and specialty programs.
