Mental health is an important factor which influences the quality of our lives and greater overall well-being. People with psychosocial disabilities face a unique set of challenges which stems from their mental health conditions. In order to lead a positive and fulfilling life, they may need to develop the skills and resilience which will help them to manage their mental health and well-being. Psychosocial Recovery Coach is a support item introduced by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which will benefit people with psychosocial disabilities in achieving independence, improving social participation and planning their recovery.
Psychosocial Recovery Coaches are NDIS-funded support workers with mental health knowledge. They will help the participants with psychosocial disabilities to access the right kind of support from the NDIS and if needed, work with a broader system of support to ensure that the participants are on the right path to recovery. In the NDIS context, recovery means being able to lead a meaningful and purposeful life. Participants can access the services of both lived experienced Recovery coaches and learned experience Recovery Coaches. Lived experience Recovery Coaches have their own personal experience of dealing with mental health issues which helps them in guiding the participants. The NDIS also has strict guidelines regarding the required qualifications of learned experience Recovery Coaches.
