Based on the Re-work Support Plan, the centers use job practice and lectures to provide persons with mental health problems with the support required to improve their capacity to adapt, including life rhythm reorganization, improvement in the ability to concentrate and endure, health control, and stress management. The centers provide support also to employers for developing the environment to accept these workers (creation of a re-work plan, education of supervisors and coworkers, etc.).
