‘NDIS Mental Health Support for SIL Participants in Perth

Aastha Community Services

Supported Independent Living (SIL)is a type of support funded under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia. It is designed to assist individuals with disabilities to live as independently as possible in their own homes or a shared living arrangement. Moving to a new living environment can be overwhelming, especially for those who have previously lived in a different setting. Mental health support is crucial in such situations as SIL participants may require support to cope with the sudden changes and improve their mental well-being. Also, many SIL participants may have pre-existing mental health conditions such as psychosocial disabilities that require ongoing support and management. These conditions can significantly impact their daily lives and ability to live

Psychosocial disability encompasses disabilities that may stem from mental health issues. While not everyone with a mental health issue experiences psychosocial disability, those who do can face significant disadvantages while living independently. The NDIS acknowledges the complexity of psychosocial disabilities and offers tailored support to those who qualify, aiming to improve their quality of life. Eligible SIL participants can avail the services of NDIS Psychosocial Recovery Coaches who could help them with their recovery. Recovery, in the context of NDIS mental health support, is not about eliminating symptoms entirely but rather achieving an optimal state of personal, social, and emotional well-being while managing mental health challenges.
