The Commonwealth Department of Health provides funding to Primary Health Networks for the provision of psychosocial support services in each catchment area.
Gippsland PHN commissions Wellways, within Australia and MIND Australia to deliver the Gippsland Psychosocial Support Program (PSP). This is a multidisciplinary program which encompasses several purpose-built service streams as detailed below:
- National Psychosocial Support Measure: providing strengths-based group and individual psychosocial support to people with severe mental health conditions, who are not more appropriately supported through the NDIS
- Interface Services: support for people who are experiencing difficulty applying for the NDIS and are deemed eligible as per the criteria
- Transition Support Services: for former clients of PIR who have not yet tested eligibility (or received their access decision) for NDIS and intend to do so.
- Continuity of Support Services: providing ongoing support for clients who previously received services under the PIR and PHaMs programs who have been deemed ineligible for the NDIS
If you would like to access support under the Gippsland PSP, please contact service provider organisations within Australia or Wellways, as per the referral form.
