Mental illness can cause great distress and has varying effects on people’s personal lives, including work, relationships and everyday errands.
There are many different types of mental illness that can have varying degrees of severity.
Some common types include:
It is important to note that mental illness and disability don’t go hand in hand, and there are people who experience a mental health condition who do not have a disability.
Psychosocial disability can arise from a mental illness and severely impact a person’s ability to recover. You can be considered to have a psychosocial disability if your condition significantly impacts your day to day living and your ability to participate in community life.
It is likely to be a lifelong condition where you need regular support.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) offers support for people living with a psychosocial disability to aid in your recovery.
