People with disabilities face numerous obstacles that hinder their social participation, education and employment opportunities. Discrimination and prejudice from society towards differently-abled individuals will negatively impact their mental health and overall wellbeing. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), discrimination against people with disabilities accounts for 44% of complaints to the Australian Human Rights Commission. The data based on which AIHW released this statistic is as recent as 2020. Utilizing the potential of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to the maximum is one of the primary ways in which we can tackle the issue of disability discrimination.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides the necessary support required by differently-abled individuals to become active members of society. The scheme helps to create a level playing field where people with disabilities can access education, employment and a life of dignity without being dependent on others. They can strengthen their mind and find the resolve to move forward in life with the help of NDIS Mental Health Support. Services of a Psychosocial Recovery Coach who can help the participants to manage their mental well-being as well as effective implementation of their goal-oriented NDIS plan will immensely impact the trajectory of the life of a person with a disability. Assistance with Daily Living and Community Participation are other NDIS supports that ensure access, inclusion and equity for differently-abled individuals. Registered NDIS service providers like Aastha are instrumental in delivering these supports to the right recipients.
Here at Aastha, we believe in the autonomy of the participants over the care that they receive. Therefore, we provide customised care plans that work well for the individual needs of each client.
