What is a Psychosocial Recovery Coach?

Psychosocial Recovery Coaches provide assistance for participants to build capacity and resilience through strong and respectful relationships to support people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life. This support is designed to be able to maintain engagement through periods of increased support needs due to the episodic nature of mental illness. Recovery coaches work collaboratively with participants, families, carers and other services to identify, plan, design and coordinate NDIS supports. The work of psychosocial recovery coaches requires lived and/or learnt experience. Recovery coaches must have tertiary qualifications in peer work or mental health (minimum of Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work or Certificate IV in Mental Health) or equivalent training; and/or a minimum two years of experience in mental health-related work.

How is a recovery coach different to a support coordinator?

One of the most important differences between Psychosocial Recovery Coaches and Support Coordinators is their area of expertise.   

A support coordinator helps you to understand your NDIS plan, access supports and keep track of goals and funding. They work with you to help exercise your choice and control while staying within the guidelines of the NDIS.   

On the other hand, a Psychosocial Recovery Coach has expert knowledge of mental health and/or lived experience with a psychological condition, making them a specialist of sorts in the field.    

Psychosocial Recovery Coach (PRC) is a new support item NDIS has added, and it is in the same registration group as Support Coordination.
