The NPS-T program provides targeted support to people who were previously accessing psychosocial services through ceased Commonwealth community mental health programs (Partners in Recovery, Support for Day to Day Living and Personal Helpers and Mentors Service) on 30 June 2019 to test their eligibility for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
National Psychosocial Transition (NPS-t) is a program which aims to better support people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs, along with their carers and families. The program brings together multiple sectors, services and supports to work in a more collaborative, coordinated and integrated way, to ensure everyone is aware of your goals and priorities and is working together to help you achieve them. NPS-t also encourages local services to communicate and talk to each other, so people with complex mental health care needs have access to the full range of support available.
How is the program delivered?
Support Facilitators are appropriately skilled and experienced individuals who work with the client to develop a tailored action plan so that the client can reach their perceived goals. The Support Facilitators will better link and coordinate services for the PIR client and avoid duplication of services.
How do I refer to NPS-t?
To access this program people must be active participants of previously ceased Commonwealth community mental health programs
Continuity of Support (CoS)
Continuity of Support (CoS) provides psychosocial supports to former clients of ceased Commonwealth community mental health programs (Partners in Recovery, Support for Day to Day Living and Personal Helpers and Mentors Service) who were receiving services at 30 June 2019 and are ineligible for supports under the NDIS. CoS will provide ongoing funding, ensuring CoS clients continue to have access to responsive support as needed.
