Working it Out: Vocational Recovery in First Episode Psychosis

The content of this manual has been derived from international evidence combined with many years of experience of planning, implementing and delivering early psychosis interventions to young people and their families.

This manual presents evidence and clinical expertise to help services establish and implement a vocational recovery program with a practical focus.

It is based on the vocational recovery program developed and implemented at Orygen in Melbourne, Australia, using specific examples from the vocational recovery program at Orygen Youth Health Clinical Program, as well as from other services available within Australia.

Although the manual has been developed based on the Early Psychosis Prevention and Intervention Centre (EPPIC) Model, the information contained in this manual may be more broadly applied in the field of youth mental health.
