Early Intervention and NDIS Support Lead

Northern Area Mental Health Service


  • New Position located at Noogal Clinic, Mill Park - Engaging with Psychosocial Community Providers
  • Help Consumers successfully navigate NDIS
  • Become a focussed expert within our multi-disciplinary teams
  • Fixed Term until June 30th 2022


Psychosocial Support is one of the most important factors contributing to a person’s recovery. People receive this support through rehabilitation programs such as CCU’s, through families, carers and the community. It supports people to build skills to manage their mental illnesses, develop social skills and friendships, and build capacity in managing day-to-day activities.


With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), all mental health support services were transitioned to an NDIS funding model, meaning those individuals without NDIS packages could not access psychosocial support services.  The Early Intervention Psychosocial Response program was developed to fund community support providers to provide psychosocial support to consumers without NDIS packages.  Referral to this service has not yet been fully maximised.


The purpose of this role is to build capacity within Northern AMHS to ensure all eligible consumers have been referred for psychosocial support through either scheme, and to provide an AMHS interface between NDIS and EIPRS providers.
