Transitional employment rehabilitation basket of services for people with psychiatric disability
The rehabilitation basket of services is the gateway to occupational rehabilitation. The basket does not differentiate between the numerous rehabilitation avenues that we offer to our service recipients. The decision regarding which is the best occupational rehabilitation track for you is made based on your skills, abilities and ambitions and as a joint decision with our professionals who guide you. Here is a brief yet thorough explanation about employment solutions for people with mental illness who are eligible for a transitional employment rehabilitation basket of services:
Transitional employment is an employment framework that enables a transition from the basic stage at a sheltered workshop to employment in the free market. Occupational rehabilitation includes unique training initiatives that we develop, such as OJT initiatives (on the job training) and employment initiatives that are designed to open up a gallery of jobs and employment options for you. The transitional employment framework is designed to enable you to gain practice and experience in the free labor market, and it operates in two configurations. We’ll come to a joint decision regarding which one is better for you:
Individual transitional employment - a short-term service of up to one year that focuses on integrating in employment in the free market as an individual, characterized by intense guidance by the employment coordinator.
Group employment - a short-term service of up to one year that focuses on integrating in employment in the free market as a group, including the intensive service of a guide at the workplace.
Your success and progress is conditional and dependent on choosing the transitional employment solutions for people with mental illness that are best for you. In order to achieve optimal transitional employment, we develop more employment initiatives to expand the gallery of organizations and jobs in the free market. Concurrently, the staff at Shavim initiate a professional training tool such as the Shavim Plus Guidance Centers that operate according to innovative models: a joint decision making model and an end-to-end (E2E) service model, where the individual guidance is conducted by one guide, from your first steps and until you graduate to the free labor market.
The rights of people with mental illness and transitional employment
As stated, the employment rehabilitation basket of services includes several professional training tracks, including transitional employment. Who is eligible as part of the rights for occupational rehabilitation for people with mental illness?
Transitional employment is an interim stage as part of the occupational training for individuals employed as part of sheltered employment (such as a sheltered workshop or job club), or not integrated in any framework and are eligible to make the transition to employment in the free market. Individuals who meet these criteria, can contact the regional rehabilitation basket of services committee to obtain approval for transitional employment service.
