Newham Individual Placement Support (IPS) is an evidence-based supported employment service that has been restructured in order to align with the Transformation of Mental Health services in the borough which merges secondary care and primary care MH services. The service therefore can be accessed by people experiencing a mental health condition, receiving support from a GP or Support team within Newham and want  Vocational/Employment/Career support
