Specialist Mental Health Support

Mental Health NDIS

Better Care Living provides specialist mental health care and support to individuals living with mental illness through our experienced staff and credentialed mental health nurses.

We specialise in managing clients who present with acute and/or chronic mental health symptoms, including addictive behaviours resulting in psychosocial disability. Our services extend to clients on Forensic Orders, Treatment Support Order, and Treatment Authority, who are receiving treatment in the community. Our evidence-based practice focuses on recovery, relapse prevention, and psychosocial education to support our clients in continuing to live independently and achieve their life goals.

We assess, plan, and individualise care using evidence-based practice in conjunction with the client and/or their significant others. Our participants’ needs are comprehensively assessed in a variety of psychosocial domains, and we implement programs that assist them in regaining and improving their coping abilities through skill-building. We engage participants in a range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions and coaching to optimize their functional recovery.

The aim of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is to assist people living with mental illness to overcome their disability and enable them to continue to live independently and fulfill their lives.
