People with disabilities are more likely to experience mental health issues than those without disabilities. This is often due to the physical, emotional, and social challenges that can come with living with a disability. At Integrity Disability Hub, as an NDIS registered provider, we understand the importance of mental health and well-being, and we are committed to helping our clients manage and improve their mental health while achieving their NDIS goals.

Here are some strategies for managing and improving mental health and well-being with NDIS support when living with a disability:

Seek professional help

If you are experiencing mental health issues, it is important to seek professional help. As an NDIS participant, you can access support for your mental health needs through your NDIS plan. This may involve seeing a psychologist, psychiatrist, or mental health clinician, and we can assist you in finding the right provider.

Stay connected with others

Social connections are essential for mental health and wellbeing. It is important to stay connected with family, friends, and support networks. As an NDIS participant, you can access funding for social and community participation to help you maintain and build your social connections.

Engage in physical activity

Physical activity has been shown to have numerous mental health benefits. Even if you have limited mobility, there are many ways to stay active, such as through seated exercises or swimming. As an NDIS participant, you can access funding for exercise physiology and personal training to help you engage in physical activity safely and appropriately.

Practice mindfulness

Mindfulness is a technique that involves paying attention to the present moment in a non-judgmental way. This can help reduce stress and improve mental wellbeing. As an NDIS participant, you can access funding for mindfulness-based interventions, such as meditation or yoga, through your NDIS plan.

Seek support from disability service providers

Disability service providers, such as Integrity Disability Hub, can provide support and guidance to help you manage and improve your mental health with NDIS support. Our team of Disability Support Workers and NDIS Plan Managers are trained to provide personalised care and support that is tailored to your individual needs and preferences, while helping you achieve your NDIS goals.

Practice self-care

Self-care involves taking time to do things that promote physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. This may include taking a relaxing bath, reading a book, or practicing a hobby. It is important to take care of yourself and do things that make you feel good. As an NDIS participant, you can access funding for support with daily living activities to help you practice self-care.

Ask our team for help
