Projects

  • Title
    • Transition to employment for graduates experiencing mental health difficulties
  • Summary
    • The development of an individualized recovery-orientated and employment-focused approach to supporting college students and recent graduates experiencing mental health difficulties from five Dublin HEIs and nationally in their transition to employment. This process facilitates the individuals to evaluate their current skills, provide them with support to source and obtain suitable employment while also developing their personal self-management strategies to maintain health and well-being while in employment. As required, the student/graduate can meet regularly with the occupational therapist and/or specialist careers adviser and engage with peer-support throughout the process which will be tailored to meet the needs of each individual participant. A collaborative triangulation between current students, recent graduates and specialist supports. This project will be build capacity into the practice student services with specialist services leading to mainstreamed interventions and developed into an online transition tool, which the student will have ownership of throughout the process and into the workplace.
