psychosocial recovery coaching

A psychosocial recovery coach is a new NDIS service designed to support individuals with a psychosocial disability to take more control of their livesand to better manage the complex challenges of day-to-day living.

What is a psychosocial recovery coach?

Psychosocial recovery coaches support individuals with psychosocial disability to recognise, reflect and take responsibility of their own recovery.They work collaboratively with individuals, their families, carers and other services to design and implement a recovery plan and help with the coordination of other NDIS supports.Individuals can choose to work with a recovery coach who has learned or lived experience of psychosocial disability.

What does a recovery coach do?

Recovery coaches work with individuals with psychosocial disability to:

  • Develop a recovery-enabling relationship
  • Increase awareness of choice and control
  • Identify individual goals and develop strategies to achieve them
  • Provide ongoing support and engagement (even in times of increased needs due to variation in individual mental illness)
  • Build individual capacity, increase recovery skills, resilience and decision making.

A psychosocial recovery coach is specifically designed for individuals who have a primary diagnosis of psychosocial disability.Recovery coaches offer a more hands-on approach, using their specific knowledge of mental health services, to ensure individuals receive the best support to reach their goals.
