Strengthening and Cultivating Individual Placement and Support Supported Employment Programs in Tennessee
May 9, 2017 | Boone Convocation Centre, Trevecca Nazarene University | Nashville, Tennessee
We are so excited to have Behavioral health providers and Vocational Rehabilitation staff together as we strengthen and cultivate IPS Supported Employment services in our state! This is the 3rd TN IPS Conference and many great things have happened since the implementation of the IPS Initiative in 2013. There are now eleven behavioral health providers implementing IPS with a twelfth agency joining this coming summer. In FY16, over 508 people were served with this evidence-based model of employment. The First Episode Psychosis Initiative (FEPI) expanded this past year, adding an IPS Employment and Education Specialist at both Alliance Healthcare in Memphis and Mental Health Co-op in Nashville to serve 15-30 year olds. Thirty counties in Tennessee have at least one IPS Employment Specialist. The growth and Statewide expansion of IPS has necessitated the need for a second Statewide IPS Trainer being added this year. This is wonderful growth, but there is still work to do to promote employment through recovery!
Thanks to the work of the IPS Conference Planning Committee, this year’s conference holds many opportunities to celebrate successes, strengthen skills, and cultivate collaboration! We hope you walk away encouraged, gain some new tools and skills, and have fun!
