Birmingham Mental Health Recovery and Employment Service

The Recovery and Employment service is a combined integrated innovative service delivered through a partnership lead by Better Pathways along with Creative Support and Birmingham Mind. The service provides an Individual Placement Support Service (IPS) which is an intensive, personalised supported employment service targeted at people in contact with secondary mental health services who want to enter employment more quickly and to help sustain their employment for longer and Four Recovery Colleges all aligned to the integrated community mental health services each offering 1:1 recovery support planning, recovery focused activities and support to develop peer-led support networks and groups. The service is city wide with hubs based in Erdington, Handsworth, Yardley and Northfield.
