The Therapeutic Work Program (TWP)
Assists individuals who are experiencing serious mental health challenges to gain valuable skills that will increase their ability to obtain and maintain meaningful employment. This, in turn, supports their recovery to better mental and overall health. Research shows that between 70 to 90% of people with serious mental health challenges are unemployed, and suffer the highest degree of stigmatization in the workplace. Research also supports that being employed and able to care for oneself is a major factor in recovery from mental illness.
