The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Disability Mental Health and Carers Program – Community Mental Health Activity – IPS Program in particular SA3 areas from May 2021 to 30 June 2024.
The Disability Mental Health and Carers Program provides support and community-based initiatives for people with disability or mental illness and for carers so they can develop their capabilities and actively participate in community and economic life.
The IPS program integrates employment and vocational support with clinical mental health and non-vocational support, and focuses on the individual needs of people with mental illness who are seeking to enter or remain in education or employment.
The objectives of the IPS program are:
• Deliver the IPS model of vocational assistance to young people with mental illness up to the age of 25 within the selected headspace sites. Additional detail regarding vocational assistance can be found in section 4.3 of the IPS Operational Guidelines – October 2020.
• Provide specialist vocational assistance that adheres to the eight core IPS Practice Principles (these can be located in the IPS Operational Guidelines – October 2020 at Attachment A).
To be eligible to receive a grant, you must be one of the organisations listed in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines and have received an invitation to apply through GrantConnect.
