Mental Health Support for Gold Coast
and South Brisbane NDIS Participants

Sometimes you can work through problems yourself or with the help of family and friends. But this may not always be the case, you might need a professional with special training and skills to support you in your time of need. When this happens, you may need to reach out to a licensed psychologist. Psychologists have years of professional training and clinical skills to help individuals to cope and function more effectively in their everyday lives.
Psychologists help their clients by using a variety of techniques and strategies which are based on the most current research. Each client’s treatment is carefully formulated to his/her individual needs, taking into consideration each person’s unique values, personal characteristics, goals, and circumstances. Every client’s mental health journey is their own and as such there is no cookie cutter approach to therapy at Urzi Psychology.

The road to mental wellness can be a bumpy one but with a trusted professional by your side you they can help point you in the right direction.

NDIS Frequently Asked Questions

The NDIS can be confusing to navigate.

To help you better understand the scheme, here are some of the questions we’re most frequently asked. 

Does the NDIS Fund Psychology?

Yes, the Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds psychology services for eligible participants.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for a variety of supports and services. These supports help people with disabilities to reach their goals and enhance their quality of life. Psychological therapies are among the services included.t

Is there a limit to how many psychology appointments the NDIS will fund?

Yes, there are some limits to how many psychology appointments the National Disability Insurance Scheme will fund.

The number of appointments funded can be determined by various factors. These include the severity of the person’s condition, the goals they are working towards, and the type of psychology services needed.

It’s important to note that the NDIS takes a flexible approach to funding psychology services, and the number of appointments funded may be adjusted over time to ensure that the individual is receiving the right level and type of support.

If a person’s needs change, their NDIS plan can be reviewed and updated to ensure that they are receiving the most appropriate supports.

How do I access NDIS funding for mental health support work?

In order to access NDIS funding for mental health support work, participants must first register with the NDIS. After registration, participants can apply for funding to cover the cost of the mental health support work they need.

The NDIS will then assess the application and decide if the participant is eligible for funding. If approved, the participant will receive funds to pay for support work.

What is the NDIS funding model for mental health?

Under the NDIS, funding for mental health supports is typically provided through two categories of support:

  1. Core supports: This includes funding for basic daily activities and assistance, such as personal care, mobility, and communication. Core supports can also include funding for mental health services, such as counselling, therapy, and group programs.

  2. Capacity building supports include funding for specialised services and supports. These services help people build skills and capacity to reach their personal goals. Examples include training in life skills, social skills, and employment readiness.


Capacity-building supports can also provide funding for mental health services. These services may include psychiatric assessment and treatment, cognitive behavioural therapy, and other evidence-based interventions.

Urzi Psychology offers both core and capacity building support for NDIS participants.
