Current Narrative:

The IDVR and H&W-Behavioral Health update this agreement annually for the purpose of better serving Idahoans experiencing severe and persistent mental illness. A team approach will be used to ensure that the Idahoans served by this agreement will benefit as to remaining de-institutionalized and successfully integrated into their respective communities from a psychological, psychosocial, and employment perspective. Those customers who have a severe and persistent mental illness deemed not eligible for this program will be referred to the general IDVR counselor. Those customers who have a severe and persistent mental illness deemed ineligible for IDVR services will be referred to other appropriate resources for assistance. A designated VR counselor and staff member are assigned to an H&W Behavioral Health Region to better serve customers. The Department of Health and Welfare provides certifiable non-federal monies for IDVR services per explained in the interagency cooperative agreement.
