“Employment is a key to community reintegration for both people with mental illness and those with justice involvement. At present, the empirical literature on employment services for justice-involved people with or without mental illness is meager. By contrast, an extensive evidence base documents the effectiveness of a specific employment model for people with severe mental illness: the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model of supported employment” (p. 1). This publication covers: the IPS Model of Supported Employment; current trends in IPS services for justice-involved people; vocational programs for ex-offenders; and adaptations of IPS for justice-involved people.
