Our mission is to achieve career parity for individuals with mental health conditions. We believe employment and education are critical to recovery. We also know that behavioral health providers and post-secondary education faculty and staff need supports and services in place to ensure the success of those recovering from psychiatric conditions. As consultants, we are experienced in providing research-based, cost-effective training and guidance to providers, educators, consumers and service systems so individuals with mental health conditions can flourish in the work environment or the classroom.

About us:

  • More than 20 years of providing career services and training in a variety of settings, including
    housing, ACT teams, psychosocial rehabilitation programs, supported employment programs,
    supported education programs, clubhouses, and post-secondary disability services offices
  • Rutgers School of Health Professions was one of the first schools in the nation to offer degrees
    in psychiatric rehabilitation and classes in Supported Education and Supported Employment
  • Expertise in managing organizational change

We offer:

  • Training in career development for adults, young adults, and transition-age youth
  • Expertise in engaging young adults, educational goal readiness, post-secondary financial aid,
    and post-secondary disability/accessibility services
  • Training relevant staff in post-secondary educational settings in how to ensure academic
    success for students affected by mental health conditions
  • Educating faculty at post-secondary educational settings about the challenges and
    implications of students’ mental health conditions
