A high proportion of people with severe mental health problems are unemployed but would like to work. Individual Placement and Support (IPS) offers a promising approach to establishing people in paid employment. In a randomized controlled trial across six European countries, the economic case for IPS for people with severe mental health problems was investigated compared to standard vocational rehabilitation.

NHS England has announced a major expansion of a landmark scheme designed to help tens of thousands of patients with serious mental health problems who want to work, to find employment.
The voluntary scheme, known as Individual Placement and Support (IPS), is being rolled out to 28 new local NHS areas, meaning eight out of ten parts of England will have access to the programme.

A £7.9m pilot has been officially launched to help South Yorkshire people with disabilities and health conditions to stay in employment and rejoin the workforce. The 'Working Win' scheme aims to assess the best type of support for those who are out of work, or struggling in employment due to health problems.

This project trialled Individual Placement and Support (IPS) with a population it had not been tested on before: people with mental health problems leaving prison.
