Not eligible for the NDIS? If you have a serious, persistent mental health condition but do not access the NDIS, we may be able to help with Commonwealth Psychosocial Support services.
Commonwealth Psychosocial Support (CPS) helps people with a persistent mental health condition which directly effects their everyday functional capacity. Our psychosocial supports work in partnership with you to improve your mental wellbeing and reach your goals. Alongside your family, friends, carers and clinical services, we help you build your support network and access psychosocial support services within your community.
Our experienced Senior Mental Health Outreach Support Workers work with you to develop a Recovery Action Plan. With time-limited intensive supports to build capacity and stability, you can work towards your personal recovery goals.
Eligibility for the NDIS can be tested in this program, where appropriate.
This service is not an emergency response service, however a safety or crisis awareness plan can be developed with the client.
- Not currently receiving funding from NDIS or from the Transition Support programs.
- A severe mental illness with at least one functional impact of the mental illness.
- Available to adults aged 16-65 years of age.
