Severe and Complex Mental Health

As of 1 July, the Western Sydney Partners in Recovery (WSPIR) program has been replaced by the National Psychosocial Support Measures (NPS) program. NPS consists of 3 sub-programs: National Psychosocial Support Measures Extended Program (NPS2), Continuity of Support (CoS) and National Psychosocial Support Measures 1 (NPS Core).

Any client who is registered in the program up until 30 June 2019, will either transfer to the NPS2, to receive ongoing support to transition to the NDIS, or those clients found ineligible for the NDIS will continue to receive care coordination support under the CoS program.

NPS2 and CoS will only be available to clients who were active on the Western Sydney Partners in Recovery (WSPIR) program up until 30 June 2019.

NPS Core will be the new referral pathway from 1 July 2019 for clients who meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Person must be diagnosed with severe and complex mental health concerns
  • Person must require multiple psychosocial needs to assist their daily life
  • Person must require substantial assistance to engage with the services they require
  • Person must consent to submitting an application for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
