What We Do
What is meant by 'recovery' under the NDIS?
The NDIA defines recovery as “achieving an optimal state of personal, social and emotional well-being, as defined by each individual, whilst living with or Recovering from a mental health condition.”
Mental health experts agree that those experiencing psychosocial disability are likely to greatly benefit from having choices and feeling more in control of their daily living and self-management.
Social and economic participation are also empowering and can help overcome feelings of isolation and worthlessness. Recovery coaches can facilitate these positive outcomes for increased well being and quality of life.
