What does psychosocial disability mean to you?

< Previous topic | Next topic >

It’s important to remember that the words ‘psychosocial disability’ are terms used by the National Disability Insurance Agency to describe the ways having a mental health condition impacts on your ability to live a meaningful and contributing life. This includes your economic and social participation in the community.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (sometimes called the NDIA) is who the government has asked to make the NDIS happen.

Just like people have very different reactions to getting a diagnosis you may have a very different reaction to the idea of having a disability, or being defined as having a disability, than someone else.

This next activity aims to explore what psychosocial disability means to you.
