Murray PHN will soon be starting work to commission new psychosocial support services through the National Psychosocial Support measure (NPSM) to assist individuals with a severe mental illness who need non-clinical community-based support to regain wellbeing.
These services are intended for people who are not better suited to support from the National Disability Insurance Scheme and are not clients of existing Commonwealth funded psychosocial support programs. Services will be short-term with a focus on recovery and capacity building and will be provided from early 2019.
Murray PHN will make first-round tender opportunities available for the provision of these services to organisations eligible to provide state funded psychosocial supports in the same area. This will help to address the significant issues that people with mental illness tell us they experience in navigating between different services and funding streams. Murray PHN tenders are published on TenderSearch.
