NDIS Support Coordination - METROPOLITAN MELBOURNE
Mind Australia’s NDIS Support Coordination services can help you get the support you need to live life your way. Navigating the complexities of the NDIS can be challenging, and that’s where our NDIS Support Coordinators come in.
Mind Australia’s NDIS Support Coordinators can help you to understand your goals and identify the supports that you need to achieve them, develop service agreements with providers, and navigate NDIS plan reviews.
About NDIS Support Coordination
The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was the first opportunity for many Australians with mental health and wellbeing concerns to purchase support that offered them help, hope and purpose – a chance to live independently and participate in the community.
These NDIS packages provide access to psychosocial support – like the kind provided by Mind Australia. Psychosocial support helps people manage daily activities, rebuild and maintain connections, engage with education and employment, and participate fully in the community. These supports help people take positive steps in their mental health recovery journey.
Mind offers two types of NDIS Support Coordination:
- support coordination – where we empower you to navigate the NDIS and find choice and control over your support services
- specialist support coordination – where team members qualified and experienced in working with people with dual disabilities (psychosocial and physical) can help you overcome barriers in accessing NDIS services, and negotiate specialist support for your complex support needs.
Who is NDIS Support Coordination for?NDIS Support Coordination provides support to people with NDIS packages seeking to understand which services they require to take positive steps in their mental health recovery journey.

What do our NDIS Support Coordination clients say?“I came to Mind to get some support. I was unsure how I was going to get better and if these supports were going to help me, but working with Josephine (Mind Support Coordinator and Community Mental Health Practitioner) I have become more comfortable and I’ve been able to try new things and get out in the community.” – Laura.
