Abstract

Young adults experiencing mental health problems are less educated than their peers, putting them in a more vulnerable position for employment and career possibilities. While Supported employment models have been widely implemented, educational supports may be necessary in order to contribute to longer term and sustainable employment. The aim of this study was to describe the state of current research regarding Supported education services for individuals with mental health problems, with a particular focus on studies that address both educational and vocational goals. A scoping review of articles published between 2000 and July 2020 was conducted. Eight databases were searched, titles/abstracts and full-text articles were reviewed for... (More)

Young adults experiencing mental health problems are less educated than their peers, putting them in a more vulnerable position for employment and career possibilities. While Supported employment models have been widely implemented, educational supports may be necessary in order to contribute to longer term and sustainable employment. The aim of this study was to describe the state of current research regarding Supported education services for individuals with mental health problems, with a particular focus on studies that address both educational and vocational goals. A scoping review of articles published between 2000 and July 2020 was conducted. Eight databases were searched, titles/abstracts and full-text articles were reviewed for inclusion. The results, which built on 56 included articles, were analysed both descriptively and thematically. The results suggest that the focus in the literature has primarily been on adapting and implementing models for the needs of different populations and contexts. Many of these build on integrated models focusing on both vocational and educational needs. Despite addressing varied populations and working in varied contexts, it is possible to identify a number of essential components when delivering educational support. The review suggests a need to look at work and studies as equally important from a career development perspective. The knowledge base developed through studying supported education services and the educational components of newly emerging services, can contribute to the further development of integrated models for young adults.
