On 29 March 2020, the Australian Government announced that it would invest a further $28.4 million from 1 July 2020, to extend support for remaining clients of the National Psychosocial Support – Transition (NPS-T) measure to 30 June 2021.
The NPS-T program provides targeted support to people who were previously accessing psychosocial services through ceased Commonwealth community mental health programs (Partners in Recovery, Support for Day to Day Living and Personal Helpers and Mentors Service) on 30 June 2019 to test their eligibility for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Clients in NPS-T can also access psychosocial supports while they undertake this process. Clients of NPS-T who are found ineligible for the NDIS will be able to access psychosocial support through the Continuity of Support (CoS) program.
