About Us

We are very well connected in the industry and pride ourselves on providing a holistic approach to supporting NDIS Participants.

Mental Health Journey Australia was founded by Darryl Johnson in 2019. In his previous roles as Australian Defence Force Medic and Health & Safety Environment Advisor, and current role as Mental Health Registered Nurse, Darryl saw firsthand the need for quality Mental Health education and empowerment in the workplace.

As a result, Darryl can create and deliver tailored training sessions to promote the wellbeing of staff and set employees on a positive mental health journey towards building capacity and growth. Darryl has also written and designed a Psychosocial Hazards in the Workplace course that is delivered to Managers and Leaders to assist in attaining a high level of productivity from the staff cohort.

In December 2021, Mental Health Journey Australia expanded into the NDIS space, providing Support Coordination and Psychosocial Recovery Coaching. Our small and dynamic team are dedicated professionals with lived experience and extensive knowledge of the community services sector.

Mental Health and the NDIS

What is psychosocial disability?

Psychosocial disability is the term used to describe disabilities that may arise from mental health issues. Whilst not everyone who has a mental health issue will experience psychosocial disability, those that do can experience severe effects and social disadvantage. People with a significant disability that is likely to be permanent may qualify for NDIS support.

When people talk about mental health recovery, they are actively seeking to create a contributing life, despite their mental health issues. This does not mean living without the symptoms of mental illness or the impairments and disabilities that it can bring. Even for people whose mental health issues are responsive to interventions, further episodes can occur. This can result in functional impairments and psychosocial disabilities that may be episodic or persistent, debilitating and long lasting. Recovery is about achieving an optimal state of personal, social and emotional wellbeing, as defined by each individual, whilst living with or recovering from mental health issues. We are committed to ensuring that recovery and hope restoring recovery practice are supported for participants with psychosocial disability through the design and implementation of the NDIS.

Mental Health Education and Training

Mental health is important for the wellbeing and productivity of your workforce. Mental health education is a great way to shine a light on mental health and empower workers to understand and identify mental health issues in your workplace and at home.

Tackling mental health head-on will lead to positive outcomes for your organisation and assist in creating a comfortable workplace environment that encourages health and wellbeing
