Why take this course?
Psychosocial recovery coaching is all about balance. That is, balancing recovery-orientated relationships with practical NDIS knowledge. You might have experience working in the mental health space (but not so much with the NDIS stuff). Or you might have NDIS expertise (but not so much the relationship stuff). Or you might be new to both.
Our Psychosocial Recovery Coach training blends the two. Across 2 intensive and practical days, you’ll build confidence and skills in all areas of the role — whether that’s advocating for your clients or knowing the ins and outs of the NDIS.
