The results of survival analyses are reported as indicators of a supported employment program for persons with mental illnesses. Separate sets of analyses were conducted to assess three critical dimensions of survival. First, length of time between program registration and placement into employment was used to assess the program’s rapidity in job placement. Second, length of time employed was used to assess the program’s durability in job placement. Third, the duration of program enrollment was used to assess the program’s longevity in support provision. Post-hoc analyses were conducted to identify consumer characteristics. These results are discussed with regard to their implications for future research as well as programmatic considerations in providing supported employment services to individuals with long-term mental illnesses.
