Mental Health TTOR

This new opioid response initiative will also enhance employment, effective crisis response and re-entry for people affected by opioid use.

TTOR – High Fidelity Supported Employment Pilot Program

TTOR Supported Employment to people with an opioid use disorder is a vocational rehabilitation program that uses individual placement and supports evidence-based model. For co-occurring populations with opioid use disorder history, these intensive services provide personalized assistance to clients choosing and obtaining employment in integrated work sites in a regular community.

TTOR – Job Developer Pilot Program

TTOR funded providers will hire full-time positions dedicated to job development. Job developers will work collaboratively with other providers to increase job placements in surrounding areas, engage employers and educate Substance Use Disorder and Medication Assisted Treatment providers about supported employment and individual placement and supports principles. The funded positions will enhance already established supported employment programs at the host agency that use the individual placement and supports model.

Mental Health Peer Support Re-entry Pilot Program

TTOR Local Mental Health Authority jail re-entry expansion programs provide community-based peer services which assist with transition or “re-entry” into clinically appropriate community-based mental health services.
