Stay Well, Stay Working is an innovative Minnesota demonstration implemented by the Department of Human Services and funded under a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This demonstration studies the effects of providing a comprehensive set of health and behavioral health care services and employment-related supports to employed people with serious mental illness. A randomized study examines whether these supports delay or prevent an individualís entry into the Social Security disability system.

Mission
The goals of the Stay Well, Stay Working program are: To create a comprehensive and coordinated set of health, behavioral health, and employment support services for employed individuals with serious mental illness. To determine how access to and utilization of these services and supports influences the progression of potentially disabling conditions. To prevent or delay a person with serious mental illness from becoming disabled and no longer able to work.
