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.
