National Psychosocial Support Measure (NPS)

Support for people with a severe mental health condition not covered by the NDIS

Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) has commissioned psychosocial support services to be delivered throughout the Hunter, Central Coast and New England regions. The NPS will support a range of non-clinical approaches to the build functional capacity of people with severe mental illness at the individual level to help enable personal recovery. The services are designed to help people for whom clinical care is insufficient to help them build capacity for daily living and who would benefit from specialised psychosocial support at certain times.

 

  • social skills and friendships
  • family connections
  • managing daily living needs
  • financial management and budgeting;
  • finding and maintaining a home;
  • vocational skills and goals, including volunteering
  • educational and training goals
  • maintaining physical wellbeing, including exercise
  • managing drug and alcohol addictions, including tobacco;
  • building broader life skills including confidence and resilience.

 

This program is specifically designed for people with severe mental ill health who are not illegible for NDIS assistance and who are not currently receiving assistance through Partners in Recovery (PIR), Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs), or Day to Day Living (D2DL) Programs.

Services will begin from February 2019
