What is a Psychosocial Recovery Coach ?
A Psychosocial Recovery Coach (PRC) is a dedicated support professional who is funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). They are typically individuals who either have a personal experience with a psychosocial disability, or have received specialised education and training. The primary objective of a PRC is to help NDIS-funded participants develop a personalised recovery plan and provide ongoing support as they work towards their goals. This involves working collaboratively with the participant, their families, carers, and other service providers to design, plan, and implement a recovery plan. PRCs also assist with the coordination of NDIS and other relevant supports. The aim of a PRC is to help clients achieve long-term recovery, improve their overall quality of life, and build a strong support network. To achieve this, PRCs provide a non-judgmental and empathetic approach to their work, and remain dedicated to helping participants achieve their NDIS goals.
