    Abstract

    This study was undertaken to evaluate a new employment initiative called ACCEPT - Assessment Counselling and Coaching in Employment Placement and Training for people with mental health problems. Pre(T1) and post-training (T2) assessments of 63 ACCEPT trainees - based on the Lancashire Quality of Life Profile - indicated statistically significant improvements (p<0.05) at T2 in satisfaction with employment status, religion and purpose in life, social relationships and overall wellbeing as well as a statistically significant increase in overall self-esteem scores.
