There is a significant and sufficient body of existing research indicating that individuals who work have better physical and mental health outcomes. Supported employment is an evidence-based practice and as such has established both the findings and the criteria to implement this model into practice. Challenges to implementation of supported employment services exist. Presently, myths, adequate staff training, funding, means-tested benefits and resources represent some of the challenges. This presentation will focus on each of the challenges and specifically what behavioral health providers can do to ameliorate these challenges.
