Abstract: This paper presents the results of a national evaluation of employment services for people with psychiatric disabilities. The study included consumers and staff from Specialist (Psychiatric) Employment Services, Mental Health Services, and (generic) Disability Employment Services. Several factors which either promote or constrain preferred employment outcomes were identified on each level of an ecological analysis. In this paper, important factors are discussed. A number of consumer-related, service-related, and wider system-related issues which emerged from the analysis are also discussed.
