Improving Employment Outcomes for People with Psychiatric Disorders and Other Disabilities


To answer questions on what services and barriers people with psychiatric disorders face, the authors
conducted two targeted literature reviews: (1) employment programs and outcomes for people with
psychiatric disorders; and (2) employment programs for people with other disabilities. Also analyzed
was data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation to examine service-use trajectories of
vulnerable populations that might be expected to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance
benefits. The authors also examined literature and policy documents that outlined funding options for
employment services for people with psychiatric disorders and other disabilities.
