It took a full year of hard work, searching, and persistence, but it all paid off for John. Hear how he and his employment specialist at Carey Counseling Center, Inc. kept their search going and found the perfect fit through the Individual Placement and Support model of Supported Employment. And now, after a year on the job, John is an integral part of the team at A&J Salvage in Union City.

Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is a model of supported employment for people with serious mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia spectrum disorder, bipolar, depression). IPS supported employment helps people living with behavioral health conditions work at regular jobs of their choosing.

In partnership with the Tennessee Department of Human Services- Vocational Rehabilitation and our network of community providers, TDMHSAS offers services in the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Supported Employment model. People receive assistance in obtaining employment, and once employed, supports are provided to assist in maintaining the job.
