“Veterans Coordinated Approach to Recovery and Employment (Veterans CARE) is a VA, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and City of Boston initiative to help Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) find and keep good jobs. Hear from the Veterans CARE team and participating Veterans.

Veterans CARE is an initiative of the VA to support unemployed or underemployed Veterans with PTSD in attaining competitive, compatible employment. The program provides Individual Placement and Support (IPS), an evidence-based approach to supported employment that emphasizes rapid job search that matches an individual’s needs and preferences, alongside integrated mental health care. IPS Employment Specialists work closely with participants’ mental health care providers to ensure that employment opportunities match their needs.”
