What is NDIS ?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program that provides support and services to Australians under 65 with permanent and significant disabilities. It was established to empower individuals with disabilities to live independently and participate fully in society by funding a range of tailored supports.

How Does NDIS Funding Work?

NDIS funding operates on the principle of individualised support. Upon assessment and approval of eligibility, participants work with the NDIS to develop a personalised plan outlining their goals, needs, and required support. This plan forms the basis for determining the funding participants receive.

Types of NDIS Funding:

  1. Core Supports: This funding covers everyday activities and supports necessary for participants to maintain independence and engage with their community. It may include assistance with personal care, household tasks, and transportation.
  2. Capacity Building Supports: These supports aim to enhance participants’ skills and independence, enabling them to achieve their goals and participate more fully in social, economic, and community life. Examples include therapeutic services, training, and assistance with finding employment.
  3. Capital Supports: Capital funding is provided for one-off purchases of assistive technology, equipment, or home modifications necessary for participants to function more effectively or safely in their environment.

Managing NDIS Funding:

Participants have several options for managing their NDIS funding:

  • Self-Management: Participants directly manage their funds, including paying service providers and keeping expenditure records.
  • Plan Management: Participants engage a plan manager to help manage their funds, pay providers, and keep track of spending.
  • NDIA-Managed: The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) manages the funds on behalf of the participant and pays service providers directly. Unfortunately,
  • at this stage, we cannot accept NDIA-managed clients.

How can Positive Mind Works Help An NDIS Participant?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) deals with a range of mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, and more. Here’s how:

1. Individual Therapy: Online psychology practices can offer individual therapy sessions tailored to address specific mental health challenges such as anxiety and depression. Therapists use evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based approaches, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help individuals manage symptoms and improve overall well-being.

2. Psychoeducation: Therapists can provide psychoeducation about anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. This includes helping individuals understand the nature of their symptoms, common triggers, and strategies for coping and self-care. Psychoeducation can empower individuals to take an active role in managing their mental health.

3. Coping Strategies: Therapists can work with individuals to develop practical coping strategies to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression. This may include relaxation techniques, stress management strategies, behavioural activation exercises, and skills for challenging negative thinking patterns.

4. Goal Setting: Online therapy can support individuals on the NDIS in setting and working towards meaningful goals related to their mental health and overall well-being. Therapists can help individuals identify achievable goals, break them down into manageable steps, and track progress over time.

5. Supportive Counselling: Therapy sessions provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for individuals to express their thoughts and feelings about their mental health challenges. Therapists offer empathy, validation, and support as individuals navigate their emotions and experiences.

6. Social Skills Training: For individuals with disabilities who struggle with social interaction and communication, online therapy can offer social skills training. Therapists can teach assertiveness, active listening, and interpersonal skills to help individuals build and maintain healthy relationships.
7. Crisis Intervention: In times of crisis or acute distress, online psychology practices can provide immediate support and intervention. Therapists can help individuals develop safety plans, access emergency resources, and provide ongoing support during difficult times.

8. Collaborative Care: Online therapists can collaborate with other healthcare professionals involved in the individual’s care, such as physicians, occupational therapists, or support workers. This interdisciplinary approach ensures coordinated care and holistic support for individuals on the NDIS.

Our promise to support NDIS participants with mental health is tireless at Positive Mind Works. Through our tailored approach, evidence-based interventions, and compassionate care, we strive to empower individuals to overcome their challenges and thrive.
By offering accessible online therapy services, we ensure that NDIS participants can receive the support they need from the comfort of their own homes. Our team of experienced psychologists is dedicated to provide personalised treatment plans that address each individual’s unique needs and goals.
