Introduction to Anxiety

There are different forms of Anxiety and they each affect us in different ways. Whether you or your loved ones suffer from generalised anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress, illness anxiety, or other forms of anxiety, there are ample support services available to help you cope with the challenges of everyday life.

Living with an Anxiety Disorder can be debilitating, but modern medicine and neuroscience have identified many methods and support techniques that can make this condition easier to live with. Our Anxiety Support Specialists are trained to understand how anxiety affects your life, develop a personalised plan, and help you see it through to meet your needs for outstanding Anxiety Support.

Anxiety Information

Throughout human evolution, we developed the crucial “fight or flight” response that was an essential protective mechanism when we were primal hunter-gatherers. When we encountered danger, our bodies would enter a state of hyper alertness. A boost of adrenaline increases the heart rate and increases our blood flow so we focus our energies on fighting for our lives or running from danger. Our experience of anxiety today is directly linked to this primal response, so you can imagine how it felt to face a bear or a pack of wolves when our ancestors lived in caves! As we evolved, that fight or flight mode has persisted and is frequently activated in inopportune everyday situations when stress and anxiety build up. This is anxiety as we now know it.

Anxiety affects people to varying degrees and everyone has experienced some form of anxiety at moments throughout their lives. Anxiety may be triggered by certain activities, such as an exam or a job interview, and it is completely normal to experience these feelings. While some anxiety is a normal part of being human, there is a level at which it simply becomes too much to handle.

Often, the thoughts and feelings associated with anxiety can be used positively to motivate us into action. However, some people experience anxiety on a more substantial level which severely impacts their quality of life, and it can become difficult to manage. When you experience anxiety on a regular basis, feeling anxious more often than not, even with no specific triggers, can significantly affect your daily life.

Types of Anxiety Support Services

Our team works one on one with you to help you with day-to-day activities, connect you with high quality treatment and therapy services, and, if indicated, we can guide and support you through social interactions.

Our supports include a full range of different services for you to determine which will best suit you. Options include any or all of the following:

Personal Care

Maple Support Workers assist people with autism by helping them live as independently as possible. Whether you or your loved one is in a group home or living in a private residence, we come when needed to help with morning routines, personal hygiene, daily tasks like eating, drinking, and bathing, and assisting during appointments.

Household Tasks

At Maple, we understand the value of healthy eating and keeping a clean home. As a part of our NDIS services, we provide help with household tasks like cleaning, meal preparation, banking, shopping, and so much more.

Community Participation

Maple Community Services can assist you or your loved one in accessing and participating in the community. We guide, support, mentor, and motivate you to succeed and reach set goals for social interaction and recreation.

Life skills development

We do this by developing a plan which gives you the training needed to achieve life goals. Supports we provide in this area include educating on personal hygiene, maintaining a clean environment at home, and organisational skills to name a few

Is Anxiety 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 suffer with mild to moderate mental health issues and around 700,000 people have severe and persistent mental health illnesses that demonstrate complex needs and thus require 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 anxiety benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we can facilitate the process and have the full capacity to provide any support services you need.

To become an NDIS participant, 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 Anxiety Specialists can help you.

How much funding can you get from NDIS?

What Can NDIS Fund for Anxiety?

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 and their carers.

The NDIS funds several critical services for people with anxiety. These include personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, transport, household tasks and behavioural support. Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS Participants when they receive their plan. The types and amounts of funding available are determined partly by the level of severity.

By partnering with Maple Community Services, together, we can help you identify your priorities and cater a support plan that provides the specific services you need, enabling you to lead a fulfilling life.

Is Anxiety a Psychosocial Disability?

Anxiety can be a cause of Psychosocial Disabilities (PSD) but is not a disability in and of itself. Psychosocial disability is a term to describe disabilities that arise due to mental health issues. People affected by PSD may be challenged by setting goals and making plans, engaging in education, training and employment, and other social and cultural activities. Some conditions that can involve significant long term psychosocial impact include:

  • Psychiatric disorders: schizophrenia, schizophreniform, and schizoaffective disorder
  • Anxiety disorders: Generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia or other phobias, and social anxiety
  • Mood disorders: bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and dysthymic depression.

How Can The NDIS Help with Mental Health?

Australians living with PSD are among the most disadvantaged in our community. The current lack of awareness and support can significantly affect the lives of people living with these conditions. They may experience challenges with communication and social inclusion, finding employment and suitable housing, and maintaining their physical health.

The NDIS works with existing, community-based services such as Maple Community Services to support you in your everyday activities and live the life you want. Because PSD symptoms can present episodically or fluctuate in intensity, NDIS supports are designed to be flexible and accommodating, and increase and decrease depending on your individual needs.

Will NDIS Pay for Anxiety Assessment?
