WIN is an employment program that offers support services, including job development and job coaching services, to adults with severe and chronic mental illness to assist them in overcoming challenges to employment.  Up to 40 eligible enrollees can be enrolled into WIN at any given time.  Based on a wellness and recovery focus, WIN integrates services provided by a Mental Health Liaison from Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, Employment Specialists from Buckelew Employment Services, and a California Department of Rehabilitation Counselor.  Funding is provided by a collaborative contract between the California Department of Rehabilitation and Marin County Health & Human Services. 

WIN's multidisciplinary team recognizes that employment success happens when an enrollee is actively engaged in mental health recovery.  WIN’s goal is to support enrollees through the employment process -- identifying ways clients can achieve levels of wellness and independence that help them reach their employment goals.

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
