This project developed and tested innovative interventions, identified barriers to and facilitators of effective partnerships among providers of employment services, and developed and tested adaptations of evidence-based employment interventions for individuals with psychiatric disabilities from traditionally underserved groups. This project also incorporated research findings into practice and policy by developing, evaluating, and implementing strategies to increase utilization of research findings; and conducts training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities (TDTA) with the same purpose. TDTA projects were organized into programmatic areas which together focus on the development and implementation of practices and services to improve employment outcomes. Using the knowledge transfer framework, TDTA projects produce usable, new technologies for improving employment outcomes.
