Allinto welcomes its first NDIS Psychosocial Recovery Coach and is now supporting people with psychosocial disability through their recovery journey.
Allinto introduced the service for people with a primary diagnosis and relevant NDIS funding to create a recovery plan which helps them reach their goals and live a good life.
Allinto Chief Executive Officer, Karen Hale-Robertson is delighted to better support clients with psychosocial disabilities.
“At Allinto we understand that psychosocial disability can be episodic so it is essential that our Recovery Coaches ensure people are still appropriately supported during the highs and lows they may experience,” Karen said.
“I’m pleased that we will soon be expanding further to provide Recovery Coaching services in Melbourne and Rockhampton, helping even more people in the community,” she said.
Recovery Coaches have either a lived or learned experience of mental illness, enabling them to offer a unique perspective to help the person on their recovery journey.
Allinto Psychosocial Recovery Coach, Nigel, first joined the team as a Support Coordinator in mid-2023 before stepping into his new role in December 2023.
“As a Recovery Coach I get to help people in my day-to-day job and benefit from real job satisfaction,” said Nigel.
“I was attracted to the role because of my lived experience having two children with mental illnesses, and a desire to help others through their recovery journey,” he said.
Based in Morayfield, Nigel will now be working with people across the Brisbane region providing Recovery Coaching services, in addition to still working with a small portfolio of Support Coordination clients.
Recovery Coaching is similar to Support Coordination, however has a bigger focus on empowerment and skill building.
Allinto has capacity to take on new Psychosocial Recovery Coaching clients, get in touch with the team today to enquire.
