An IHVT program was designed to improve employment outcomes for people with chronic psychiatric disorders. This client-centered program includes the areas of work-related behaviors, on-the-job skills, and life balance alongside the ongoing vocational counseling. The program outcomes showed satisfactory employment rates (52.9 to 65.6%) and high employment sustainability (greater than 6 months). The IHVT is a promising alternative to traditional vocational training.
