Introduction to PTSD
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a serious mental health condition that can severely impact a person’s day to day functioning and quality of life. Some examples of trauma that can result in PTSD include the death of a loved one; physical, emotional, or sexual abuse; near-death experiences; severe illness; witnessing a traumatic death or accident; wartime environments; or other possible traumatising events.
Maple Community Services is well situated to assist patients with PTSD in order to help them manage any disabilities they live with and improve their functional, mental, and emotional well-being.
Is PTSD Covered by the NDIS?
If you suffer from a long term disability resulting from a mental health condition, also known as a Psychosocial Disability or PSD, it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and you may be eligible for funding to avail of our support services.
It is estimated that 3 million people in Australia suffer with mild to moderate mental health issues and around 700,000 people have severe and persistent mental health illnesses that demonstrate complex needs and thus require support due to their disability.
At Maple Community Services, we’ll walk you through the assessment process to see if you qualify for NDIS PTSD benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we can help facilitate the process and have the full capacity to provide any support services you need.
To become an NDIS participant, you need to provide evidence of your mental health condition but a specific diagnosis is not required. NDIS support is contingent on how the condition impacts you and your daily activities, rather than the diagnosis itself, and that’s where our PTSD Specialists can help you.
What Can NDIS Fund for PTSD?
The NDIS aims to provide better access to high quality, personalised, and innovative supports and services to enhance the independence and social and economic participation of people with disabilities and their carers.
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with PTSD. These include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, transport, household tasks and behavioural support. Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS Participants when they receive their plan. The types and amounts of funding available are dependent on the level of disability. By partnering with Maple Community Services, together, we can help you identify your needs and cater a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.
