Webinar #16 - Working towards Recovery: Lessons on employment supports from CMHA Ottawa (August 30, 2017)

Working towards Recovery: Lessons on employment supports from CMHA Ottawa

Description: The unemployment rate of people with serious mental illness can be as high as 90% in certain segments of the population and many more people with mental illness are thought to be significantly underemployed or precariously employed.   These statistics are particularly disturbing since productive work has been identified as a leading component in promoting positive mental health and in paving the way for a rich and fulfilling life in the community.   

To assist people with mental illness in finding meaningful competitive employment, and addressing the stigma they often face, the Canadian Mental Health Association has implemented the “At Work/Au travail” program, a national collaboration delivered in 13 communities across Canada. This recovery-oriented program provides supported employment related services to individuals who have complex service needs related to a mental health illness and who want to find competitive employment in the catchment areas of the Agencies. The Program supports rapid placement, competitive employment opportunities, participant choice and retention services to assist in securing and maintaining employment, improving mental health, improving physical health, reducing hospitalization, increasing financial well-being, expanding positive social networks and integrating the community. 

Join CMHA Ottawa’s Jason Platt, Ken Wright, and Charlene Moysey as they provide an overview of CMHA Ottawa’s services and programs, client success stories, and the activities they are undertaking to build relationships with employers and help support clients in their job search and retention.  In addition, hear from two clients of CMHA Ottawa’s At Work program who will share their challenges and successes in their employment and recovery journey.
