Because employment changes lives
Work Counts provides expert support and training for organisations to develop and deliver IPS employment support programmes within their services.
IPS employment support can be found throughout New Zealand in many community mental health settings, as well as in Housing First, Māori, Pacific and youth specialist services. However, access varies from region to region.
Work Counts is proud to be a New Zealand partner of the International IPS Learning Community and a founding member of the Asia-Pacific IPS Learning Community.
Work Counts was established in 2018 as part of the Wise Group, and supported by both the Ministries of Health and Social Development, to provide sector leadership, technical assistance and training. Work Counts is one of six IPS employment support technical assistance centres globally.
The Wise Group is one of the largest non-government organisations (NGOs) providing mental health and addiction services in New Zealand. The group has more than 30 years’ experience working with multiple agencies, systems, and funding arrangements to support the delivery of positive outcomes for New Zealanders.
