What is it?

Individual Placement and Support or IPS is an approach that is used to help people with severe and enduring Mental Health Illness, get into and then to stay in work.

This is not an easy task. A study posted by IPS Grow suggests that only 7% of people with severe and enduring mental health illnesses are in work.


IPS is a proven approach to help increase that 7%, and what’s more it works.


When compared to other Vocational Rehabilitation approaches 62% of IPS Clients got a job against 25%.


IPS also helped people work more hours with 66% working more than 20 hours and only 14% in other approaches. 


It’s quicker too with it taking on average 145 days to get a job with IPS and 214 days with other approaches.
