Supported Employment Component
Have you received supported employment services? If so we are inviting you to take part in a telephone interview to share your experiences with these services.
We want to hear your experiences about the types of support you got from the supported employment program – what helped, and what could be done better. All information you tell us is confidential. A gift card with a value of $25 dollars is available to thank you for your time and effort in taking part in the study.
This interview is part of “The Aspiring Workforce” study funded by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The Mental Health Commission of Canada is a non-profit organization created to focus national attention on mental health issues and to work to improve the health and social outcomes of people living with mental illness.
The study is being run by an interdisciplinary team of researchers, service providers and advocates. Dr. Bonnie Kirsh, Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Toronto is the lead for the section on supported employment services.
