27 Sep What can you expect from your NDIS psychologist?
Positive Wellbeing Psychology are here to help you achieve your NDIS goals by understanding a range of mental health and wellbeing barriers that may prevent you from progressing in daily living and life skills. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you may be able to access Capacity Building, Daily Activities – Improved Daily Living Skills – Therapeutic Supports, which includes Assessment, Recommendation, Therapy and/or Training (including AT) by a Psychologist (Support Item Reference Number: 15_054_0128_1_3). At Positive Wellbeing Psychology, we provide this support to participants of the NDIS to assist in the development and maintenance of life skills, capacity building, independent living and community participation. The support item is specifically designed to deliver progress or change for the participant. Therapy in this context must be aimed at adjustment, adaption and building capacity.
NDIS participants may benefit from a referral to a registered psychologist at Positive Wellbeing Psychology when identifying with the following barriers:
- Experience difficulty with learning and therefore not try new (community) activities
- Poor social skills and anxiety preventing the participant from leaving their house
- Making it hard to make progress and reach goals?
- Low mood paired with lack of motivation therefore leading to difficulty sticking to a routine
- Lack of routine and structure thereby impeding the participant’s mood, resulting in depression
- Exhibiting symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, thereby resulting in avoidant and withdrawal behaviours that subsequently prevent the participant from connecting to desired social and community activities
There are a number of mental health barriers that can make it challenging for the NDIS participant to make progress and reach their NDIS goals.
