Unfortunately, a much larger barrier prevents the adoption of evidence-based supported employment. The crux of the matter is our failure to develop a clear, simple, direct funding mechanism. No single agency funds IPS supported employment, and providers must cobble together funding from multiple sources. And as several state mental health directors have said to us, “I hate to waste money on daycare programs, but that's what Medicaid pays for.” Why hasn't this problem been solved? At the federal and state levels, leaders protect their bureaucracies, funding silos, and organizational barriers. In doing so, they block the adoption of evidence-based practices, subvert recovery, hold people with disabilities hostage, neglect the basic human right to social inclusion, and impede society's efforts to overcome stigma. We can only hope that good sense, humanism, and science will eventually win out.
