Evidence-Based Practice Initiatives
Evidence-Based Supported Employment
Request for Applications
The Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) was awarded a four‑year grant from the Johnson & Johnson Dartmouth Community Mental Health Program in 2010 to implement evidence-based supported employment services for adults with serious mental illness.
This initiative is a partnership between DBH and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and it recognizes the value of work in recovering from mental illness.
The aim of the project is to offer high-quality supported employment services to adults with serious mental illness or co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders throughout the commonwealth.
Through this competitive process, Regional MH/ID boards that are not currently part of the Johnson & Johnson Dartmouth Supported Employment Project are being asked to make application to become a pilot site under this initiative.
Three new pilot sites will be selected to be added to the collaborative in state fiscal year 2014. The timeline is as follows:
- February 2, 2013: Issuance of Request for Applications to Regional MH/ID Boards
- March 18, 2013: Applications due to DBHDID Central Office by close of business
- April 15, 2013: Announcement of pilot sites
