About 70% of adults with serious mental illnesses desire work and approximately 60% of consumers can be successful at working when using Supported Employment (SE) services which are offered at Lakes Region Mental Health Center through the JobLink program.
Granite United Way is providing grant funding to LRMHC so that we can expand staff training and increase the organization’s overall capacity to provide SE services to more people in our community.
Supported Employment is an approach to vocational rehabilitation for people with serous mental illnesses that emphasizes helping them obtain competitive work in the community and providing the supports necessary to ensure their success in the workplace. SE programs help consumers find jobs that pay competitive wages in integrated settings in the community.
We are especially grateful for Granite United Way’s support in helping us make our community a better place to live and work! Thank you!
