As an OT working in the NDIS space with clients with mental health and psychosocial issues, we have many opportunities to make meaningful and lasting contributions to peoples’ lives and journeys.
One such story was a client I recently worked with who did not have suitable permanent accommodation due to her complex behaviours.
As such, she was facing imminent homelessness. As her OT, I worked with her medical and therapy team to assess, report and advocate for a permanent housing solution that would meet her complex behavioural issues and long term needs.
What justified inclusion into community programs, access to social groups and assistance with personal and instrumental activities to ensure she could lead a meaningful and satisfying future.
