The Center for Practice Innovation's (CPI) primary goals are to promote the widespread availability of mental health evidence-based practices in New York State, promote innovations related to emerging promising practices, cultural adaptations and organizational change approaches and to create informational and educational resources for the general public as well as users and providers of mental health services.

New Supported Employment Online Module: 

Introduction to IPS

The Center for Practice Innovations is pleased to announce the release of an online training module that focuses on the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) approach to supported employment.  Because of the high rates of employment attained by consumers participating in high-fidelity IPS programs across the country, IPS has become the gold standard for supported employment. 


This module features video clips of consumers and practitioners, interactive exercises, and links to helpful resources.  It focuses on a number of key issues:

  • why employment is important,
  • historical context for IPS,
  • the fundamentals of the IPS approach,
  • the core practitioner skills that follow from these fundamentals,  and
  • implementing IPS.


This module is now available free of charge to practitioners in NYS agencies and programs who are enrolled in CPI's learning management system ("CPI Learning Community").   For other practitioners, please contact CPI at [email protected] for information about CPI's initiatives and how interested programs can join.

We look forward to working with you.
