A quick guide to national psychosocial support changes

Posted on February 15, 2019

People living with a severe mental health condition experience many symptoms that may make it difficult for them to meet the demands of daily life.

Psychosocial support services are programs and activities designed to help these individuals boost their ability to meet these challenges. It can take many forms, and may mean helping people get better at managing money, developing work goals, maintaining relationships, and more.

National changes are underway in the delivery of Australian Government-funded psychosocial support services, largely due to the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

It’s a complex area that touches on a number of different programs and services. With that in mind, we’ve prepared a quick guide to help Tasmanians understand what services are currently on the ground, and which ones will be shortly.

While Primary Health Tasmania is not involved in the rollout of the NDIS, the guide includes some information about where to find out more about it on a local level.
