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.
