Life Without Barriers offers Mental Health Support services in South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and Queensland. We also have some national resources in Psychosocial Disability.

South Australian services

In addition to assisting clients with psychosocial disability transition to the NDIS, our mental health services in South Australia range from primary (clinic-based counselling) and inpatient acute to community rehabilitation in supported accommodation.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation Support Programs

Extended Transition Support (ETS)

Adelaide Metro & Hills, Fleurieu, Kangaroo Island & Riverland regions

Existing PHaMs and PIR programs clients who have not yet tested eligibility or transitioned to the NDIS will continue to receive support during these processes. It ensures people with a severe mental health condition who require support to access mainstream and community supports, have access to psychosocial supports.

Continuity of Support (CoS)

Adelaide Metro & Hills, Fleurieu, Kangaroo Island & Riverland regions

Existing PHaMs and PIR programs clients who have been tested and deemed ineligible for the NDIS will continue to be supported to meet a similar outcome. These psychosocial services cover a range of non-clinical supports that focus on building capacity and connectedness at times when most needed, rather than providing ongoing support.

National Psychosocial Support Measure (NPSM)

Adelaide Metro area

NPSM services are for people who are living with severe mental health conditions, experience an associated reduction in their functional capacity and are unable to access supports through the NDIS, ETS or CoS. The service aims to improve access to psychosocial support services, mental health outcomes and equity in service availability, reduce the avoidable need for more intense and acute health services and enhance appropriate/optimal use of the health system.
