Work can be a big boost to a person’s recovery. Not only does a job help pay the bills, it can also provide a person with a sense of pride and belonging. Having a job adds structure to daily life, increases social contacts and support, and enhances opportunities for personal achievement.
In partnership with the Department of Human Services - Vocational Rehabilitation and our network of community providers, TDMHSAS offers services in the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Supported Employment model. People receive assistance in obtaining employment, and once employed, supports are provided to assist in maintaining the job.
To learn more about Supported Employment services, please contact Mark Liverman at (615) 253-6748 or Mark.Liverman@tn.gov.
