About Vocational Services

Recovery from severe mental illness is not only possible, but it is the goal for all participants in our youth and adult programs.

While recovery looks different for everyone, gainful employment is a component of living in recovery.

Supported Employment (SE) has been an element of our services for many years and remains a priority. Vocational staff members provide assistance with supported employment, self-employment options, developing PASS plans and financial and work incentive counseling services for individuals.

We are also an Employment Network (EN) for the Social Security Administration. This enables us to help beneficiaries on Social Security benefits (SSI or SSDI) to return to work using the Ticket to Work program without losing benefits.

Alaska Seeds of Change is an Alaska Behavioral Health vocational program specifically for transition age youth.  Follow the link for more information.  Youth who need additional assistance with employment following their time at Seeds can be referred to the Alaska Behavioral Health Adult Vocational staff.
