Psychosocial support for people with severe mental illness
Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network are pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for the provision of psychosocial supports across the Murrumbidgee region for people with severe mental illness.
Psychosocial support is defined as "support and services that are purchased to work in partnership with individuals who are not more appropriately funded through the NDIS and are significantly affected by severe mental illness, which has an impact on their associated psychosocial functional capacity. These services, in partnership with families and carers (as appropriate), provide a range of non-clinical community based support to these individuals to achieve their recovery goals" (National Psychosocial Support Working Groups, 2017)
The funding will be for people with severe mental illness who are not eligible for assistance through the NDIS, and who are not receiving psychosocial services through programs such as Partners In Recovery (PIR), Day to Day Living (D2DL) or the Personal Helpers and Mentors Program (PHaMs).
