Work Talk is a podcast series delivered by IPS Grow.  A podcast where we bring to you a range of expert comments and insights into IPS (Individual Placement and Support), real-life stories, best practice, mobilisation tips, and mental health knowledge.

Through this podcast, we hope to bring the IPS Community together to offer support and share learning as we raise awareness for the role of employment in mental health and its place in the recovery journey.
