This chapter provides resources for vocational rehabilitation, or simply, the job training and support services a recovering schizophrenic will want to take advantage of in order to start a new life. Vocational rehabilitation programs typically provide vocational counseling and guidance, assessments to help identify skills and abilities for obtaining a job, training in job skills, support services that include transportation, equipment, and the like, as well as job placement assistance, which can include training for interviews or job coaching. Occasionally, some people might need some minor adjustments to their work environment—herein referred to as “reasonable accommodations”—in order to perform effectively at work or school.
