SAMHSA Supported Employment Grant
~~“OhioMHAS was recently awarded the Transforming Lives through Supported Employment grant for $4.8 million dollars over 5 years. This will be a partnership between OhioMHAS, the state training, technical assistance and evaluation partners, and other state departments including Vocational Rehabilitation and two community behavioral health agencies: Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services and Daybreak, Inc. The mission of this project is to modernize, enhance, and increase availability and quality of IPS services to meet the needs of individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
The expected outcome is for Ohio to have the necessary infrastructure in place to maintain, expand, and sustain IPS throughout the state and to increase the number of individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder that obtain and retain integrated competitive employment of their choosing.”
