What is a Psychosocial Recovery Coach?

A Psychosocial Recovery Coach (recovery coach) is a new NDIS support item for participants with a psychosocial disability who require support managing complex challenges of daily living.

The aim is to increase participants’ social and economic independence and participation through the provision of capacity building supports.

Recovery coaches will focus on coaching participants to have greater participation in managing their lives and will collaborate with other services to support and underpin these outcomes.

Recovery coaches will work collaboratively with participants, their families, carers and other services to design, plan and implement a recovery plan, and assist with the coordination of NDIS and other supports.
