IPS Program

Averte is pleased to partner with Dartmouth medical center to add IPS as a part of the Averte program.

IPS Supported Employment is an evidence-based approach to supported employment for people who have a mental illness. IPS stands for Individual Placement and Support. IPS supports people in their efforts to achieve steady, meaningful employment in mainstream competitive jobs, either part-time or full-time. This stands in contrast to other vocational rehabilitation approaches that employ people in sheltered workshops and other set-aside jobs.

IPS has been extensively researched and proven to be effective compared to standard employment services


Currently, Averte has 10 slots for this program funded by the Natalia Elejalde Ruiz mental health foundation.  Please follow the link to read more about this foundation.
