Abstract

In an effort to expand employment opportunities available to psychiatric consumers, a research demonstration project was developed to incorporate vocational services into case management teams. Following psychiatric rehabilitation principles, Project WINS employs professionals as Vocational Specialists and consumers as Peer Support Specialists to work with clients and their case managers. This report describes the characteristics of clients eligible for WINS services, the implementation of the program, and the impact of WINS on clients and on the mental health and vocational systems. It also describes the challenges and barriers this innovative service is confronting.
