Chrysalis is comprised of four core programs:

Supported Employment – Individual Placement and Support (IPS)

The Supported Employment Program is available for individuals who are seeking community-based competitive employment.  The program offers services such as vocational skills assessments, assistance with the job search process, initial on-the-job training, and ongoing support. IPS is a evidence-based practice from Dartmouth University (

Vocational Peer Support

The peer specialist movement embodies Chrysalis’ strengths-based perspective. Vocational peer supports give persons with mental illnesses the opportunity to use their unique set of recovery experience in combination with solid skills training to support peers who have mental illness achieve their vocational goals.

Chrysalis Pops

In 2016, Chrysalis started a new Social Enterprise. Chrysalis Pops offers paid work opportunities that improve the mental health and wellness of individuals and the community through local, organic pops. We work hard to source the majority of the produce for our pops from local suppliers.

Chrysalis Clubhouse

The Chrysalis Clubhouse is a place where people with mental health challenges come to build relationships, work on employment and education goals, and support their individual recovery process. The Chrysalis Clubhouse welcomes people with different abilities and is an inclusive nonjudgmental environment.

Certified Peer Specialist Learning Community (CPS-LC)

The CPS-LC provides technical assistance and consulting to support the integration of Certified Peer Specialist roles within new and emerging organizations across Wisconsin. 

Wings CSC

In 2023, Chrysalis and FLYY (Forward Learning Youth and Young Adults) partnered with the WI Department of Health Services to create Wings, a comprehensive service model centered around young people experiencing their first episode of Psychosis. The full service array includes: care coordination, education and employment support, peer support, skills development, therapy, and psychoeducation.
