The National Psychosocial Support Transition initiative, announced by the Department of Health in March 2019, ensures continuity of support for participants currently accessing a psychosocial service that is due to end on 30 June 2019.

Psychosocial support services include a range of initiatives, which aim to help people with a severe mental illness increase their ability to do everyday activities.

Following 30 June 2019, participants in the Commonwealth funded programs Partners in Recovery (PiR), Support for Day to Day Living in the Community (D2DL), and Personal Helpers and Mentors Scheme (PHaMS) will be able to access National Psychosocial Support (NPS) Transition as a temporary measure until they are transitioned to either the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or to Continuity of Support (CoS).
