IPS Learning Community Continues to Grow

Tennessee recently joined the group of states, regions and countries learning together about how to implement and sustain IPS. For more about the learning community, select About the Center (above), then Current Projects, and The Johnson & Johnson – Dartmouth Community Mental Health Program.

studies, disseminates findings, and delivers training and consultation services. This website provides information about IPS supported employment for consumers, families, mental health professionals and program administrators.
