Supporting someone who experiences mental health problems can be a complex and challenging task. Carers need to help the people they support to navigate the mental health system and often advocate for the care and support needed.  It is common for this to be a difficult task that brings up many emotions along the way. 

This short course will introduce you to a practical tool that helps you reflect on what actions you have taken, the results of those actions and how to manage the emotions that come up along the way.

This course is a must for anyone who is interested in what the NDIS will provide for people with mental health related disability and how to prepare for your NDIS planning session. We will also cover what you can do if you don’t qualify for the scheme.

As the course progresses we will explore what your life is like now and how you would like it to change in the future. You’ll understand how with an NDIS plan you will be able to pursue your passions and dreams and develop your creativity to live a life of meaning and purpose. This course will also help health professionals, friends, family, and carers to understand what the NDIS is and how it can support positive change for someone living with mental health related disability.
