DISABILITY AND MENTAL HEALTH FAQ’S

What Is Disability?

Disability is when a significant impairment (either by condition of function) affects an individual. Impairment can include physical, sensory, intellectual or cognitive and also includes chronic diseases and mental illness. The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) for example defines disability using six separate, but inclusive descriptions.

Nn relation to a person, means: (a) total or partial loss of the person’s bodily or mental functions; or (b) total or partial loss of a part of the body; or (c) the presence in the body of organisms causing disease or illness; or (d) the presence in the body of organisms capable of causing disease or illness; or (e) the malfunction, malformation or disfigurement of a part of the person’s body; or (f) a disorder or malfunction that results in the person learning differently from a person without the disorder or malfunction; or (g) a disorder, illness or disease that affects a person’s thought processes, perception of reality, emotions or judgment or that results in disturbed behaviour; and includes a disability that: (h) presently exists; or (i) previously existed but no longer exists; or (j) may exist in the future (including because of a genetic predisposition to that disability); or (k) is imputed to a person.

What Are Disability And Mental Health Support Services?

Disability and Mental health Support Services are those services provided by public or private organisations that assist people with disabilities (participants) to perform functions of daily living.

Disability and Mental Health support services can also apply to the carers of people with disabilities. Services provided can include Supported Independent Living (SIL), Short Term Accommodation (STA), Social and Community Participation (CP) and respite services to name a few.

What Are The Types Of Disability And Is There A List Of Disabilities?

In Australia, the Department of Social Services provides a Guide to the list of Recognised Disabilities which outlines disabilities in two parts. Part 1 is Recognised Disabilities and Part 2 is Medical Disabilities.

In terms of the NDIS’s Access to Operational Guidelines, there are 5 lists (A through to E) covering various disability categories and requirements. List A is provided here.

Is Sapphire Support an Approved NDIS Disability And Mental Health Services Provider?

Yes. We are registered as a Provider with NDIS (#4050043190). Call us on 1300 881 884 for more information

What Are Disability Benefits and The Disability Support Pension?

In Australia, the Disability Support Pension and Disability Benefits can be considered the same thing. It is a payment system for people who have a permanent physical, intellectual or psychiatric condition that stops them from working.

More information, including NDIS based information, can be found here at the Australia Services government website.
