Vocational Rehab Services for Teens

Vocational rehabilitation services help teens successfully return to employment following a significant injury or illness. Mary Free Bed works with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS), government agency whose mission it is to assist teens with disabilities to achieve employment and self-sufficiency.

An MRS on-site rehabilitation counselor is available at Mary Free Bed two days a week.

Your teen is eligible to receive services from MRS's on-site rehabilitation counselor at Mary Free Bed if:

  • They are a Mary Free Bed  inpatient or outpatient  
  • Have a disability that prevents him or her from returning to previous employment
  • If the disability prevents him or her from entering the job market

MRS's services for eligible patients include: skill training, job placement, job coaching, assistive technology, transportation, and much more. A referral can be made to the MRS counselor by anyone; however, most referrals are made by a member of the therapy team or the attending physician.

For individuals who are not patients of Mary Free Bed, please contact Michigan Rehabilitation Services for a listing of offices throughout the state at 1.800.605.6722 or 1.888.605.6722 (TTY).
