Supported Employment helps people with mental illnesses find and keep meaningful jobs in the community. When people feel good about having a job, they often see themselves in a more positive way. Work gives people structure and routines. Having an income gives them more choices about what to buy and where to live.
This film gives viewers basic information about the Supported Employment (SE) program, including the following:
* Practice principles;
* Practice philosophy and values;
* Basic rationale for services; and
* How the evidence-based practice has helped consumers and families.
English and Spanish versions of the Introductory Video are on the DVD in the KIT.
