The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has always made a consistent effort toward fulfilling the needs of people with disabilities. As a part of this, NDIS focused on participants with psychosocial disabilities and introduced a support item called Psychosocial Recovery Coaches. The aim was to make it easier for people with psychosocial disabilities to access NDIS and to provide them with a recovery-oriented NDIS experience. This helps participants to have greater control and choice over the care they receive and bring the changes that they want in their lives.
APsychosocial Recovery Coachis someone who has in-depth knowledge about mental health. Some Psychosocial Recovery Coacheshave learnt knowledge and working experience in the Mental Health field while some others have lived experience of psychosocial disability. Lived experience means that they had their personal experience ofmental health recovery.NDIS values lived experiences because those people can provide support to people with psychosocial disabilities and help them figure out the best pathway to recovery. Psychosocial Recovery Coaches will also spend time with the participants to understand their needs, motivate them and increase the capability of the participants to be independent. They can help you develop individual recovery plans and connect you with relevant support and services to achieve your NDIS goals.

Support Coordination is a capacity building support from the NDIS that helps the participants to access support and services effectively. Not only does a support coordinator help the participant to understand their plan better, but they also assist the participant in planning and coordinating various supports and services. Having a support coordinator at their service will help people with disabilities to get better results out of their NDIS plans.
Gradually over time, the individual will develop the skills and confidence to coordinate the supports on their own. Like all the other NDIS supports, Support Coordination also falls into the purview of a ‘reasonable and necessary’ assessment. Therefore, the level of support coordination funded in an NDIS plan, as well as whether support coordination is included in your plan at all will differ from person to person. The services of a support coordinator can be immensely helpful when you are getting ready for your Plan Review meetings, entering into service agreements and making service bookings. They will simplify all the complicated details and policies for you so that you can make informed choices and have complete control over the services that you are signing up for. Experienced support coordinators who are working with registered NDIS service providers like Aastha will act in your best interest at all times by helping you prepare for unprecedented events like shifting to a new house or going to a hospital in an emergency. At the end of the day, the goal is to build your confidence and ability to take care of yourself and your supports.
Support coordination is one of the most beneficial support that a participant can access through the NDIS. It will drastically improve the quality of services that you receive and help you achieve your goals quicker. Contact us today to know more about our support coordination services.
