SOAR Webinar: How Working is Promoting Recovery for People with Mental Illness

Wednesday, July 22, 2015
3:00pm-4:30pm (EDT)

Join us for a webinar featuring researchers and trainers from the Dartmouth IPS Supported Employment Center. IPS stands for Individual Placement and Support, the evidence-based approach to supported employment for people living with mental illness. The Dartmouth presenters will provide an overview of the IPS model, and share information on how this model has been effective with supporting individuals experiencing homelessness work competitively in the community.

We will also hear from a SOAR program at Columbus House/Pathways to Independence in New Haven, Connecticut, which offers supported employment services to SOAR applicants considering employment.

You will learn how to talk to SOAR applicants about the possibilities of work early in your engagement with SOAR applicants who are considering work.
