NCPHN is now seeking proposals from suitably experienced organisations to provide psychosocial activities to build the capacity of community members with severe mental illness.
What is psychosocial support?
Psychosocial support, in partnership with families and carers, provides a range of non-clinical community-based supports to achieve mental health recovery goals. Reviews of the effectiveness of psychosocial support services have highlighted strong evidence for the value of capacity building activities that work with people to enhance their ability to manage mental illness, improve relationships with family and others, and increase social and economic participation.
Who can access it?
People with severe mental illness who are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and who are not receiving psychosocial services through programs such as Partners in Recovery (PIR), Day to Day Living (D2DL) or the Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) service.
How do I learn more?
The Request for Proposals (RFP) process is managed via the NCPHN Tenderlink Portal. Anyone wishing to review the RFP documents must register on Tenderlink to access these, and all enquiries must be submitted through the portal.
The closing time and date for lodgement of proposals is 6pm on 26 April 2019.
