Psychosocial disability is a term used to describe a disability that may arise from a mental health issue.
Not everyone who has a mental health condition will have a psychosocial disability, but for people who do, it can be severe, longstanding and impact on their recovery. People with a disability as a result of their mental health condition may qualify for the NDIS.
The NDIS provides Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary support they need to enjoy an ordinary life. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme, families and carers will have access to the help they need to support people with disability so they can participate in a life filled with community and employment opportunities.
Our support services promote choice and control and are tailored to suit your specific needs. Our aim is to help you engage with your community and educational activities, to build your independence and overall confidence. IMPACT support staff work closely with you and your family, carers and supporters for the ideal outcome. Our programs are governed under the NDIS quality safeguards.
