Disability and mental health support services

The National Psychosocial Support Measure offers one-on-one coaching and group activities that support recovery for people with severe mental health issues, who are living in metropolitan Adelaide, and are not supported by the NDIS.

Using a recovery focus, an experienced mental health support worker can help you to build confidence and skills to achieve your goals based on your needs and preferences. These can include:

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

Referrals to the National Psychosocial Support Measure can be made by the person seeking support, a friend or family member, or a doctor or mental health provider. Support can range from three to six months.

UCWB delivers the National Psychosocial Services Measure as a member of the Central Adelaide Hills Partners in Recovery consortium. Consortium partners include Life without Barriers, MIND Australia, Mission Australia, Skylight Mental Health, Uniting SA and Neami National.
