There is no intervention more inclusive than employment. Evidence shows that the sooner the hospitalized psychiatric client receives regular routines and realizes their own abilities - including securing and sustaining meaningful employment and making a contribution to his or her own community – the faster he or she engages in recovery.
Our EMPLOYMENT SPECIALISTS are embedded at Spring Harbor Hospital and at Maine Behavioral Healthcare community locations. The specialists provide individual job development and supported employment to assist individuals in:
- Finding employment and educational opportunities
- Evaluating work readiness
- Working with prospective employers to access job opportunities
- Working with current employers to retain the patient’s current position
