Addressing barriers for people pursuing competitive employment
January 5, 2020
In October 2012, Workwise and Compass Health PHO formed a partnership to implement a demonstration of integrated employment support with general practices in Wellington.
The goal of this process evaluation was to explore a partnership model between Workwise, Compass Health PHO and Work and Income and impacts on the individuals involved in the service.
The primary finding was that GPs, Workwise and Work and Income began to address barriers experienced by clients with mental health issues wishing to pursue competitive employment.
Te Pou evaluated the partnership with the goal of examining the implementation of the partnership and exploring early outcomes for clients involved in the demonstration, publishing this evaluation report in 2013.
