The Ohio Supported Employment Coordinating Center of Excellence is a technical-assistance organization that helps service systems, organizations, and providers implement and sustain the Supported Employment (SE) model, maintain fidelity to the model, and develop collaborations within local communities that enhance quality of life for consumers of mental health services and their families.

Research demonstrates that SE significantly increases employment rates. The SE CCOE provides these services: service systems consultation; program consultation; clinical consultation; training and education; research and evaluation.

Famous quotes containing the words centers and/or research:

    [Madness] is the jail we could all end up in. And we know it. And watch our step. For a lifetime. We behave. A fantastic and entire system of social control, by the threat of example as effective over the general population as detention centers in dictatorships, the image of the madhouse floats through every mind for the course of its lifetime.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    Men talk, but rarely about anything personal. Recent research on friendship ... has shown that male relationships are based on shared activities: men tend to do things together rather than simply be together.... Female friendships, particularly close friendships, are usually based on self-disclosure, or on talking about intimate aspects of their lives.
    Bettina Arndt (20th century)
