Ministry of Defense supported employment

Many individuals who require employment solutions for people with mental illness are referred to us from the Ministry of Defense. To our delight, each year we manage to place a large number of these people in jobs. It’s important to mention that supported employment is the most advanced stage of job placement that prepares you for a job in the free labor market. So, whether we have already helped you pass the initial stages of occupational rehabilitation (sheltered employment or transitional employment) or whether this is your first meeting with us, this page has information about the supported employment rehabilitation basket of services:

This is a job placement track as part of your eligibility for a supported employment rehabilitation basket of services and it includes: vocational guidance for anyone who has not yet chosen a vocational path, professional training, and close one-on-one guidance by our staff. Concurrently, in order to expand your employment horizon, we develop training initiatives, special courses and employment initiatives in a variety of fields.

Ministry of Defense rehabilitation basket of services committee

Although people tend to do a Google search with the terms “supported employment rehabilitation basket of services”, in practice, unlike the Ministry of Health or the National Insurance Institute, the Ministry of Defense does not have a rehabilitation basket of services committee. The Ministry of Defense has a rehabilitation department that determines your eligibility for occupational rehabilitation and it will refer you to Shavim with a breakdown of the maximum number of days allocated for the process. This referral has to be renewed on a monthly basis whether you are pursuing rehabilitation in a sheltered workshop or in the free labor market.
