Supported Employment is an evidence-based practice that helps people with mental illness find and keep meaningful jobs in the community. Given these outcomes the challenge for Supported Employment programs is to rethink the emphasis on immediate work for everyone and help consumers utilize appropriate education and training opportunities available in their communities so they can, over time, qualify for skilled jobs and professional careers (Baron & Salzer, 2000; Bond et al., 2001). This paper introduces all stakeholders to the research literature and other resources on Supported Education. This booklet includes the following resources: (1) Review of the research literature; (2) Selected bibliography for further reading; (3) References for the citations presented throughout the KIT; and (4) Acknowledgments of KIT developers and contributors.
