The Mental Health and Employment Partnership (MHEP) Social Impact Bond (SIB) was designed to create partnerships between agencies to drive innovation and collaboration. It sought to increase investment in Individual Placement Support (IPS) with the aim of better supporting unemployed people with severe and enduring mental health conditions back into employment.

The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) was commissioned to conduct an impact evaluation of the service, which took place between March 2016 and September 2019. ​Participants were aged 18 to 65 and out-of-work, with severe and enduring mental health conditions.
