The aims of the Psychosocial Continuity of Support Program (PCoS) are to:
Work in partnership with clients who are not more appropriately funded through the NDIS and are significantly affected by severe mental illness, which impacts on their associated psychosocial functional capacity.
Provide appropriate levels of psychosocial supports, group work and activities to clients while they are supported to test eligibility for the NDIS, or transition to ongoing support arrangements within the community and health services.
PCoS helps local people living with complex mental ill-health improve their capacity to engage with community and the NDIS.
CHESS Connect psychosocial support services delivered across the Mid North Coast NSW provide one on one strength-based assistance for people with mental illness as they transition to the NDIS as well as those where the NDIS is not the most appropriate support.
Non clinical assistance is provided to help people to achieve their recovery goals and maintain their physical and mental wellbeing.
CHESS Connect has over 25 years’ experience working with local people living with severe and persistent mental health conditions. We have strong and established connections with existing community services, improving your pathways to support and enabling recovery-focused systems of care.
This service is funded by Healthy North Coast through the North Coast PHN
