Psychosocial Services Available

The Partners in Recovery (PIR) program has been replaced with the Commonwealth Psychosocial Support (CPS) program. The Disability Trust have partnered with Coordinare to deliver the CPS across the South Eastern NSW region, highlighting community-based supports for people experiencing poor mental health.

Psychosocial supports through the CPS program are free for people living with severe mental illness and delivered by The Disability Trust in the Bega Valley, Eurobodalla and Snowy Monaro local government areas.

Designed for people aged 16-65, CPS will help those with severe or complex mental health conditions. Through the program, participants will be assisted with managing their daily activities, building and maintaining connections, developing social skills, and engaging in education and employment.

The program has three key elements:

  • Service Navigation – to assist you to find and connect with mental health services & supports that best meet your needs.
  • NDIS Application Support – to assist you to apply for and supply appropriate information for the NDIS to determine your eligibility based on your psychosocial support needs.
  • Recovery Supports – delivering recovery focused supports in your home and community to help you manage your daily activities, rebuild and maintain connections, build social skills and participate in education and employment.

 

These supports are provided by trained Mental Health Workers and Peer Support Workers who can help you navigate the mental health system, access education and information on a range of topics, and support you to reconnect and achieve your identified goals.

A Peer Support Worker is a person who is employed to work specifically from a lived experience of mental illness and recovery. Our workers have knowledge and experience of mental health issues and deliver supports that aid a meaningful recovery.

Recovery is different for everyone. Recovery can be a unique and personal journey – an ongoing experience. It is a journey rarely taken alone; often including both achievement and setbacks.

We can support you through the individual journey that is recovery. Our aim is to help you create and live a meaningful and productive life in a community, in the way you choose.

Anyone can refer into the Commonwealth Support Program – You, your family, friends, GP, other services or health professionals can refer to the program.
