TSUNAMI

About Us

Judgments on how social policies work are often based on sensations and anecdotic evidence about their effectiveness, while it is still quite infrequent that rigorous analyses provide results really answering to the question “does it work?”

The TSUNAMI project aims to provide solid evidence on the effectiveness of an active labour market policy targeted at unemployed with mental illness.  People participating in TSUNAMI are provided with a complex series of services, which last up to 11 months,  mainly based on job coaching and the activation of internships.

The main goal of the project is to understand if such a type of intervention is suitable as a means for improving the employment chances of the the people with mental illness.
