Under the guidance of the My Choice My Way plan, Hawaii Behavioral Health works with The Department of Health, and other stakeholders, on providing employment services to qualified participants. Our goal is to help participants attain competitive, integrated employment. We believe that all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the capacity to find their life’s work.
Discovery and Career Planning (DCP)
During the Discovery and Career Planning Program (DCP), Hawaii Behavioral Health works with participants to explore their strengths, abilities, and interests. Our DCP services are designed to help participants explore future careers, build their skills, and realize their talents. Once participants are ready to enter the employment market, HBH transitions them into Individual Employment Supports.
Individual Employment Supports (IES)
Hawaii Behavioral Health’s Individual Employment Supports Program (IES) works with all stakeholders, while helping participants access and maintain employment in the community. HBH consults with employers, discovering their business needs, and finding mutually-beneficial employment opportunities for our participants. HBH also continues to develop our participants, providing person-centered employment planning, job coaching, and problem solving.
