National Psychosocial
Support Measure

Our focus is on helping those most in need and most isolated, so they can access excellent care closer to home.

Mental ill health represents a significant challenge for the community. In the 2017-18 Budget the Australian Government committed $80 million over four years for the National Psychosocial Support (NPS) measure and $109 million nationally over three years from 1 July 2019 for the provision of Psychosocial Continuity services.

An additional announcement was made in March 2019 for purpose-specific funding of $121.29 million over 12 months for Transition Support services, which gives providers additional time for Commonwealth community mental health clients to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or Psychosocial Continuity services.

Primary Health Networks have commissioned services for the NPS measure, Psychosocial Continuity and Transition Support services.

Psychosocial Continuity services are commissioned for previous participants of Partners in Recovery (PIR), Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs), and Day to Day Living (D2DL) programs who are assessed as ineligible for transition to the NDIS. Psychosocial Continuity services commenced from 1 July 2019. 

PIR, PHaMs and D2DL clients who did not have a NDIS eligibility decision by 30 June 2019 are supported under Transition Support services to assist with testing NDIS eligibility and to receive interim services.  This funding to providers is for a period of 12 months.

New clients with severe mental illness requiring psychosocial supports are able to access services through the Psychosocial Support services. These services are for people who are not more appropriately supported through the NDIS and were not previously clients of PIR, PHaMs and D2DL as of 30 June 2019.

UPDATE: As of 30 June 2021 Transition Support service ceased, leaving only Psychosocial Continuity and Psychosocial Support services available for clients to access. Any remaining Transition Support clients were transferred to Psychosocial Continuity services.
