Introduction to Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar Disorder is a mental illness that can inflict serious disability on patients throughout Australia. People living with Bipolar Disorder experience periods of major depression as well as periods of mania or hypomania.
Thankfully, there are effective therapies and medications that help patients living with Bipolar Disorder manage their illness, reduce episodes of depression or mania, and function on a day to day basis. When a patient’s treatment does not prevent recurrence of their symptoms, they can develop disabilities which limit their ability to perform usual tasks and diminish their quality of life. Maple Community Services is well equipped to assist patients with Bipolar Disorder in order to help them manage any disabilities they live with and improve their functional, mental, and emotional well-being.
What Does Our Bipolar Disorder Support Involve?

What Can NDIS Fund for Bipolar Disorder?
The NDIS aims to provide better access to high quality, personalised, and innovative supports and services to enhance the independence and social and economic participation of people with disabilities, as well as their carers when applicable.
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with Bipolar Disorder. These include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skills development, transport, household tasks, and behavioural support. In addition to this, Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS clients when they receive their plan. The type and amount of funding available is determined in part by the level of severity of an individual’s disability.
By partnering with Maple Community Services, together, we can help you identify your priorities and outline a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.
Is Bipolar Disorder Covered by the NDIS?
If you suffer from a long term disability resulting from a mental health condition, also known as a psychosocial disability or PSD, it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and you may be eligible for funding to benefit from our support services.
It is estimated that 3 million people in Australia experience mild to moderate mental health issues and around 700,000 people have severe and persistent mental health illnesses, demonstrating complex needs and thus requiring support due to their disability.
Psychosocial disabilities can be crippling if not addressed properly. At Maple Community Services, we can walk you through the assessment process to see if you qualify for NDIS Bipolar Disorder benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we can facilitate the process and have the full capacity to provide whatever support services you may need.
To become an NDIS client, you need to provide evidence of your mental health condition, but a specific diagnosis is not required. NDIS support is contingent on how the condition impacts you and your daily activities, rather than the diagnosis itself, and that’s where our Bipolar Disorder Specialists can help you.
