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.

- Daily living support.
- Managing money.
- Connecting with the community.
- Emotional support.
- Improving physical health.
- Family relationships.
- Coordinating services.
