Psychosocial Recovery Coaching
What is Psychosocial Recovery Coaching?
Psychosocial Recovery Coaching (PSRC) is a capacity building support service for people living with a psychosocial disability.
A recovery coach is a mental health specialist who works with you to design and implement a recovery plan. Their role is to assist you with the coordination of services within the recovery plan and ensure you feel supported.
A Recovery Coach will:
- Take the time to get to know you as a unique person (and other important people in your life)
- Work to truly understand your individual needs
- Help to connect you with the RIGHT service providers, who understand and empower you.
- Liaise with formal and mainstream supports
- Help you navigate and better understand the NDIS
- Support you through the complex challenges of daily living
- Work collaboratively with you and care team members to devise a recovery plan.
- Make sure your choices and wishes are respected.
Who needs it?
PSRC is recommended to those living with a psychosocial disability. This may include participants who have been diagnosed with mental health conditions including (but not limited to):
- A dual diagnosis (a mental health disorder combined with a substance use disorder)
- Mood disorders, such as Depression and/or Bipolar
- Anxiety and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Generally, PSRC will be funded in plans for people who have a psychosocial disability. However, if you do not wish to work with a Recovery Coach, you do not have to. The choice is yours.
What do I need in my plan?
To access PSRC with an NDIS plan, you will need funding under the Capacity Building Category- Support Coordination.
PSRC and Support Coordination are funded in the same way- However PSRC funds are allocated specifically for participants with a psychosocial disability. Therefore, if you wish to receive psychosocial recovery coaching, it must be stated in your plan.
The funding is based on what is ‘reasonable and necessary’ (NDIS) to pursue your individual goals, in addition to the support provided by family, friends, and other community and government services.
The funding will be a fixed amount for a Recovery Coach to work with you regularly- helping you confidently utilize your NDIS plan and achieve your goals.
