This short online course is intended for non-employment practitioners such as counselors, therapists, housing specialists, peer specialists, and others. The course reviews how employment helps individuals with their recovery, even if they continue to experience mental health symptoms, substance use disorders, homelessness, or other issues. And the course provides a short introduction to IPS so that practitioners can describe the program to their clients who are considering employment.
Participants will view videos of working people and practitioners, as well as read material and take short quizzes. Most people can complete the course in two hours. Those who go through the entire course can download a certificate of completion.
The course will open each month and close after three weeks.
