PEER (Program Encouraging
Employment & Recovery)
The PEER project
develops an employment priority and is strongly integrated with the
other behavioral health services, especially community support services
and case management. This project follows the individual placement and
support model of Becker and Drake. The PEER Project is based on the
premise that nearly every person with severe mental illness can benefit
from the process of looking, finding, and working in a rewarding job.
Employment specialists work with participants in their natural setting
and in the community to minimize barriers and enhance supportive
outreach. Clients are not screened out. Those clients who express
interest in competitive employment become participants and are given
support in finding a job as rapidly as possible that is tailored to the
clients interest, preference, ability, and choice.
The project emphasizes
the supporting of individuals in their search for the best job rather
than train individuals to fit jobs that have already been created. It
also recognizes that vocational assessment and development is never
ending process and not just a one time placement. Long term follow along
support will be provided for both job retention and career development.
