A Working Life for People with Severe Mental Illness

Once a person has obtained a job, the employment specialist and the rest of the treatment team offer individualized supports to the client to maintain the job. Each working client will have a different set of supports because everyone has different needs. Supports are provided on an ongoing basis as long as the client wants and needs support. This chapter describes different categories of follow-along support, such as emotional support, support in the workplace, employer support, family support, peer support, and social skills training. Job endings are always viewed in terms of transitions and new information about the person as a worker that is used when planning for the next work experience. The chapter includes several vignettes to illustrate follow-along support.

Keywords:   follow-along support, employer support, social skills training, job endings, job transitions
