MEANINGFUL LIVES

Supporting Young People with Psychosis in
Education, Training and Employment

 

Why this matters:   Unemployment is associated with poorer social and economic inclusion, greater symptomatology, decreased autonomy and generally poorer life functioning. However the Healthcare Commission survey of users using community mental health services (2008) shows that only 50% had received any help with finding work in the last 12 months.

The role of Early Intervention Services in England:
  In England, an important principle of care for Early Intervention Services for young people with a first episode of psychosis was the emphasis on normal social roles and clients development needs, promoting recovery and independence, and particularly involvement in education and achieving employment (Department of Health, 2001).
