Mental Health and Employment Partnership (MHEP) is a vehicle through which local commissioners of mental health supported employment services can procure a specialist intervention known as Individual Placement and Support (IPS). IPS is designed to address the employment support needs of people with severe mental health conditions, based on having an employment advisor embedded in local mental health professional teams.
This is the Commissioning Better Outcomes Evaluation of the SIB. It shares the strengths and challenges as well as the lessons learned.
