Below is a link to an updated IPS Works PowerPoint regarding evidence-based research on the effectiveness of IPS services. 25 states have VR and Mental Health (MH) staff participating in the IPS Learning Community.  New Hampshire was the latest to join.

CSAVR and the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) are assisting the IPS and Westat staff in promoting collaboration between state VR and MH staff in developing IPS services.
