Many individuals with mental health challenges have difficulty holding jobs due to the cyclical nature of their illness or insufficient coping and work-related skills. Yet, employment plays a significant role in recovery from mental illness. Canvas Health provides vocational services to help these individuals seek and attain employment, and to develop skills to help them maintain employment.
The Partnering for Jobs Individual Placement and Support Services program is dedicated to bringing hope, healing, and recovery by assisting individuals with finding and keeping competitive employment. The program is a collaborative effort between Canvas Health, Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, and Minnesota Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
These services are funded by Minnesota Vocational Rehabilitation Services and are provided at no cost to participants.
For questions regarding eligibility criteria or the referral process please ask your Canvas Health provider or Case Manager for a referral or contact:
