Innovative support programme improves employment prospects for people with mental health problems 

News Content

A study by researchers at the University of Nottingham has shown that the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) approach alongside more tailored work-focused psychosocial support has delivered an overall employment rate of 57% for patients in the county living with a range of serious mental health conditions. This compares to just 12% achieved by strategies currently employed by local healthcare trusts and 3% through Government back-to-work schemes. The NIHR Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire CLAHRC funded this implementation and evaluation study.
