The Employment Intervention Demonstration Program (EIDP) is a multisite research study of innovative programs that combine vocational rehabilitation with clinical services and supports. The study was designed to determine new ways of enhancing employment opportunities and quality of life for mental health consumers. Funded by the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the program includes eight demonstration sites as well as a Coordinating Center. The EIDP Coordinating Center, charged with overall program administration, data management, and data analyses, is located at the Center for Mental Health Services Research and Policy in the Department of Psychiatry, working in collaboration with the Human Services Research Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
