Employment solutions for people with a psychiatric disability is Shavim NGO’s expertise.

Shavim offers employment solutions to people with a disability, psychiatric problems, and special needs. The rehabilitation basket of services people offered to people with a psychiatric disability includes professional occupational rehabilitation in various placement options that are suited to the applicant.


Employment is much more than a source of income. Employment fills you with content, provides you with interest and a professional horizon, contributes to expanding social circles and life in the community. And mostly, employment nurtures a positive self-image and self-confidence and can give a new lease on life.

This is exactly why Shavim NGO for occupational rehabilitation was founded. Shavim focuses on and specializes in professional training and finding employment solutions for people with psychiatric disabilities.

We have a wide variety of professional placement avenues:

To commence the process you have to contact any of the bodies that approve eligibility for this basket of services: The Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Defense, and the National Insurance Institute.  Once you are deemed eligible, you are welcome to contact us so that we can develop a multi-stage occupational rehabilitation plan for you, which includes:

A short and/or long-term vocational assessment, which is aimed at: providing an evaluation, guidance and expert opinion at committees.

Workshops to teach occupational skills, work habits, and preparing for the work environment in sheltered workshops.
