Supported Employment for people with severe mental illnesses is an evidence-based practice. This article is based upon converging findings from four studies of the conversion of day treatment to Supported Employment and nine randomized controlled trials comparing Supported Employment to a variety of alternative approaches. These two lines of research suggest that between 40 and 60 percent of consumers enrolled in Supported Employment obtain competitive employment while less than 20 percent of similar consumers do so when not enrolled in Supported Employment.
