IPS WORKS is a dedicated unit within the Western Australian Association for Mental Health, the peak body for community mental health in WA, with more than 50 years' experience in advocacy, sector development and training and mental health promotion.
IPS WORKS uses a tailored approach, providing unique solutions to meet the needs of your organisation and staff to develop, deliver and evaluate a successful Individual Placement and Support (IPS) program.
We recognise that paid employment is a basic human need and endorse the Individual Placement and Support model as person-centred, fostering hope and promoting social inclusion.
At IPS WORKS we understand that employment can reduce the negative impacts of living with a mental health condition by increasing self-worth, alleviating symptoms, and increasing satisfaction and well-being.
IPS WORKS specialises in assisting community organisations and services to implement evidence-based supported employment following the internationally acclaimed Individual Placement and Support model.
