The PRC specializes in developing effective interventions under research conditions, then translating these interventions into actual mental health service practices and evaluating their effectiveness in routine practice settings.



We collaborate with ten centers and multiple independent programs, clinicians, scientists, and specialists to perform interdisciplinary research, training, and education across the United States and around the globe.



From evidence-based practices to findings in research that incorporates multiple scientific perspectives, the PRC works to implement and disseminate knowledge to the consumer, the clinician, and the researcher in the classroom and in the field.

What is IPS Supported Employment?

"My training basically taught me that people with mental illness would never work."

IPS supported employment helps people with severe mental illness work at regular jobs of their choosing. Although variations of supported employment exist, IPS (Individual Placement and Support) refers to the evidence-based practice of supported employment.
