Psychosocial Recovery Coaching

What is a recovery coach?

A recovery coach supports you with your recovery. Recovery is about achieving an optimal state of personal, social and emotional wellbeing, as directed by each individual, whilst living with or recovering from mental health issues. Recovery means being able to live a purposeful and meaningful life.

A recovery coach is an NDIS funded worker that has mental health knowledge. A recovery coach will:

  • spend time with you, and people important to you, to get to know you and understand your needs
  • help you to find out about different services and supports, and how these can help you
  • help you get support from mental health services
  • help you better understand the NDIS and support you with the NDIS

You can choose a recovery coach with lived experience.  A coach with lived experience has their own lived experience of mental ill health and recovery and are able to use this experience to inform their work.

Who receives recovery coach funding?

Generally, recovery coach will be funded in plans for people with psychosocial support needs. Participants do not have to choose a recovery coach if they do not want one.

Can participants have support coordination and a recovery coach?

You can speak to your support coordinator or contact the NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator to find out how to get a recovery coach.

Most people only have a recovery coach because it is a better use of your NDIS plan. However, depending on your plan or situation you may choose to have both.
