RELATIONSHIPSWe recognise that each participant’s journey is different and the importance of maintaining positive and respectful relationships with them and their inner trust circles. That is why we will develop a respectful, professional, and recovery-enabling relationship with all our participants, their families, relevant stakeholders, and carers. This relationship will be built on trust and a shared understanding of the participant’s goals and needs so they can focus on working through the ups and downs of their recovery journey.
COACHINGBased on the individual needs of our participants and their preferences we will endeavor to match our participants with the most suitable recovery coach. Our recovery coaches will engage with the participant and support them to take more control of their lives. Additionally, the recovery coaches will support the participant to better manage the complex challenges of day-to-day living and articulate and own what a contributing life means for them and their families.
SERVICESOur recovery coaches, through lived and learned knowledge understand firsthand the impacts that mental health can have on a person and how important it is to have access to & engage with mainstream, community, and funded supports.
This is why our recovery coaches will help participants coordinate services and support them to access a range of different resources and services in a way that helps them work towards their goals identified in their Recovery Plan.
PROGRESSWe measure our success on our clients' successes and accomplishments. Therefore our recovery coaches will work collaboratively with our clients and relevant stakeholders to prepare and complete progress reports. These progress reports will be completed quarterly (every three months) and will act as a gauge on whether the supports as designed are meeting our clients’ expectations and needs.
COLLABORATIONCollaboratively with our participants, our recovery coaches will complete progress reports to help evaluate progress and to demonstrate that supports are meeting our participant expectations and needs.
Additionally, our recovery coaches will provide progress reports to the participant, the NDIS, and agreed-on relevant stakeholders at the approved times. Progress reports will outline how NDIS funds and other resources are being effectively utilized to progress goals identified in the participant’s Recovery Plan.
Our Recovery Coaches will work collaboratively with participants with psychosocial disabilities, their families, carers, and other services to design, plan and implement a recovery plan, and assist with the coordination of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and other supports.
NDIS PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT
If you have an NDIS plan, we can help you get the most out of it as you work towards your goals. Our range of Capacity Building and Core Support services (below) are offered both in your home and the community.
Our experienced recovery coaches will help you understand your experiences of well-being and distress, map out the steps you want to take towards recovering, and then work with you to reach your goals and get the most out of your NDIS plan.
At BCOGNITIVE, we have both personal lived experience & learned experience coaches and both sets will use their experience of mental distress and their journey of recovery to better assist you. We are passionate about what we do and will work with you on your journey.
Why peer supervision? – Peer work in mental health is a specific practice approach that requires more than a lived experience of mental distress. Peer Work requires the application of both lived experience of mental distress and recovery, coupled with the learned experience of how to skillfully and through mindful practice, draw on one’s own experiences to support the healing of others. Peer Supervision is a shared reflective practice process whereby a person with significant peer work experience and skills supports the peer worker to explore, develop and grow their peer work practice.
Why Workplace Solutions? – Because…it is now widely accepted that creating a mentally healthy workplace has immense benefits for employers and employees alike. There is no doubt that a well-designed workplace support and fosters positive individual mental health. This, in turn, can then lead to reduced absenteeism, increased employee engagement, and increased group productivity.
