Missouri Department of Mental Health Legislator Briefing “Mental Health Highlights and Issues"
~~“In October 2016, DD announced a goal to increase the utilization of employment services for individuals between the ages of 16 and 64. This new initiative, called Empowering through Employment, is a statewide effort involving the division’s regional offices, support coordination providers and employment service providers to get 3,700 more Missourians into employment services. This increase would mean that 35% of Missourians are accessing employment services (which mirror what is occurring in other states).”
