Vocational integration services in community mental health: professionals' perceptions of training needs.


:Vocational integration in mental health is part of a national initiative to make quality, community-based work a possibility for persons with psychiatric disabilities. While effective delivery of these services requires trained staff, preparing professionals to provide relevant vocationally oriented services is complex and challenging. This study examines perceived priority training needs in vocational integration services from the perspectives of professionals in mental health, rehabilitation, and education organizations in Mississippi. Findings suggest that vocational integration activities are perceived differently across organizations and across occupational specialties. Implications for staff development in community support and psychosocial rehabilitation programs are discussed.
