Disability and mental health support services

The National Psychosocial Support Measure is a program for people with severe mental health issues who are living in metropolitan Adelaide and are not supported by the NDIS.

Psychosocial support offers one-to-one coaching and group activities that support recovery for people with enduring mental illness.

Using a recovery focus, an experienced mental health support worker can help you to build confidence and skills to achieve your goals.  The length of support can range from three to six months. Areas of support are based on your needs and preferences and can include:

  • Daily living support.
  • Housing.
  • Employment.
  • Education.
  • Managing money.
  • Connecting with the community.
  • Emotional support.
  • Improving physical health.
  • Family relationships.
  • Coordinating services.
  • Justice.
  • Alcohol and other drugs.

Anyone can make a referral to the National Psychosocial Support Measure including:

  • People requiring support
  • Doctors and GPs
  • Family members or friends
  • Other mental health or health services.

UCWB delivers the National Psychosocial Support Measure program as a member of the Central Adelaide Hills Partners in Recovery consortium. As the lead agency, enquiries and referrals can be made to Neami National by calling 1300 358 220 or downloading a referral from their webpage.
