Psychosocial Disability Stream Added To NDIS

People with severe and persistent mental health issues will now have improved access and support to the NDIS it was announced on the 10th October, in an announcement coinciding with World Mental Health Day.

The new stream will be implemented progressively and includes:

  • the employment of specialised planners and Local Area Coordinators
  • better linkages between mental health services and National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) staff, partners and
  • a focus on recovery-based planning and episodic needs.

This announcement will go a considerable way to supporting many of those with severe mental health issues who have been neglected in the transition to the NDIS.
