The Emergence of Supported Employment

The field continues to shift toward supported employment and related models that include less emphasis on pre-employment experiences and more focus on real-world conditions and competitive jobs. To a large extent, this change reflects the movement toward evidence-based practices, which refer to models and principles of mental health care that have consistent scientific support for effectiveness. As described by Carpinello et al.,[8] New York (and nearly every other US state) has developed explicit plans for adopting evidence-based practices, including supported employment.
