Psychosocial disability, recovery & the NDIS
Psychosocial disability is the term used to describe disabilities that arise from mental health issues. Whilst not everyone who has a mental health issue will experience psychosocial disability, those that do can experience severe effects and social disadvantage. The NDIS will be supporting people with psychosocial disability that significantly impacts their life and is likely to be permanent.
The NDIS supports recovery and will tailor a support package to individual needs. If eligible for individualised NDIS support, it is anticipated that you will be provided with a commitment to lifetime support with your ongoing recovery journey. The NDIA defines recovery as “achieving an optimal state of personal, social and emotional wellbeing, as defined by each individual, whilst living with or recovering from mental health issues”.
