“Recovery is not the same thing as being cured. Recovery is a process not an end point or a destination. Recovery is an attitude, a way of approaching the day and facing the challenges. Being in recovery means recognising limitations in order to see the limitless possibilities. Recovery means being in control. Recovery is the urge, the wrestle, and the resurrection …” Pat Deegan (1996)
LotUs Assist offers Psychosocial Recovery Coach (recovery coach) to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
What will psychosocial recovery coaches do?
- Psychosocial recovery coaches will provide support to people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life. People will be assisted to take more control of their lives and to better manage complex challenges of day to day living.
- Through strong and respectful relationships and skilled coaching, people will be supported to build capacity, including strengths and resilience. Psychosocial recovery coaches will work collaboratively with people, their families, carers and supports to design, plan, implement and adjust a recovery plan.
- They will collaborate with the broader service system and will assist with the co-ordination of NDIS and other supports.
Psychosocial Recovery coaches are different from support co-ordinators in that they bring specialist knowledge and skills in psychosocial recovery, mental health and service navigation within the mental health system.
A participant with funding for a psychosocial recovery coach in their plan will have the option of selecting a recovery coach with either lived experience or with learned knowledge of psychosocial disability and mental health. The practice of Lived Experience psychosocial recovery coaches will be informed by the Lived Experience Discipline.

What others are saying
“Before I started talking to Helen I was in a very dark place, I had no motivation to do anything, I was constantly putting myself down and doubting myself in every way possible. Helen has helped me in so many ways.
Assisted in making my doctors appointments, helping me with my strategies when I started to feel down again and making sure I was on track with my mental health care plan while still being there for me every step of the way. She has been an incredible support to get me to better myself and be in a much happier place.
I do not know where I would be today if it wasn’t for Helen’s constant help and support over the last year! I am so grateful to have had Helen by my side and I could not be more thankful for everything she has done for me.”

Jayne is also very supportive to support staff too. I know first hand.
She's a great asset to your company.

Over the many years I have known her, Helen has continually demonstrated an outstanding and unwavering empathy, respect and dedication to her clients and those most vulnerable within the community, through her work and in her capacity as a volunteer.
