SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

Policies and Programs

~~“Supported Employment Services are available to clients served by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services department (SMHA). For those clients enrolled on the Young Adult Services (YAS) Program, these employment services are provided directly by the vocational staff assigned to the team.  For clients receiving services from programs other than YAS, referrals are made to the area network providers who have established vocational programs in place. SMHA and our affiliates follow Individual Placement and Support (IPS), an evidenced-based employment model, in order to maximize employment outcomes for the clients we serve. If a client’s employment efforts have been unsuccessful despite vocational supports, a referral to the Department of Rehabilitative Services (formerly known as the Bureau of Rehabilitative Services – BRS) for more intensive services can be explored/made.  For more information, contact Janet Mundle, Supported Employment Coordinator at (860) 859-4506 or Janet.Mundle@ct.gov
