Mental Health

Support for everyday life

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Mental health affects how we think, feel and act. It also affects all aspects of our everyday life; such as work, relationships and study. Looking after our social and emotional wellbeing is as important as keeping our body healthy.

Mental illness is a general term for a group of illnesses that may include symptoms that can affect a person’s thinking, mood, behaviour or perceptions. Mental illness can make it difficult for someone to cope with work, relationships and other demands. Some common mental illnesses include Anxiety Disorders, Depression and Bipolar Affective Disorder.

Other less common illnesses include psychotic illnesses. In a twelve-month period, just under one in every 200 adult Australians will experience a psychotic illness. The period of time where people experience psychotic symptoms is known as an ‘episode’ of psychosis. This experience is different for everyone. People may only experience a few or infrequent episodes of psychosis, others will experience symptoms more frequently. Some psychotic illnesses include brief reactive psychosis, schizophrenia and drug induced psychosis.

SUPPORT NAVIGATING THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM, ADVOCACY & FACILITATION

We will assist you in accessing supports starting from review of your current services and supports, discussions with your GP and considering access to government and non-government services that are available either through a referral from your GP or that you self-refer. These could be support services that assist with appointments and accessing the community or with home duties such as cooking and cleaning, support to access education or vocational activities.
We will assist you in considering treatment options in the public and private systems.
