Tender awarded to ermha to deliver new Psychosocial Support Services
Monday, 24 June 2019
SEMPHN is pleased to announce that ermha has won an open tender to deliver new Psychosocial Support Services (PSS) in partnership with Launch Housing across south eastern Melbourne.
PSS aim to address a current gap in services for some people who are unable to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), but whose recovery would benefit from receiving a level of specialised psychosocial supports.
Psychosocial Support Services (PSS) is the term we're using to reflect the type of services ermha will deliver via two new programs:
1. The National Psychosocial Support (NPS) measure is for people with severe mental illness who:
- are not eligible for the NDIS
- are expected to benefit from the provision of psychosocial supports
- have not been clients of Partners in Recovery (PIR), Day to Day Living (D2DL) or the Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) programs
- do not access state-funded mental health community support services.
2. The Continuity of Support (CoS) service provides ongoing support for consumers who:
- accessed services under Partners in Recover (PIR), Support for Day to Day Living in the Community (D2DL) and Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs)
- as at 30 June 2019 are ineligible to receive services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
PSS will start from 1 July 2019, with referrals received via SEMPHN's Access & Referral.
