This webinar will describe how the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model of supported employment was adapted for young adults with very significant mental health and other challenges at the Thresholds agency in Chicago. We will describe the adaptations made to IPS namely the addition of supported education services and of a peer mentor. Viewers will learn about the feasibility of implementing this adapted model, implementation lessons learned, and the outcomes of participants. Dr. Gary Bond will present on how the IPS fidelity scale was modified and tested for this study and the resulting scale that can be used in other sites.
