The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a disability, including people with severe mental illness. NDIS support can help with doing everyday activities and connecting with the community.

The NDIS Mental Health Access Project is assisting people with a mental illness to access the NDIS. We work collaboratively with other services to help people to understand, engage in and complete the NDIS access process.

This program offers:

• Assist you to gather supporting evidence and complete the Access Request form
• Liaise with health services and general practitioners/private psychiatrists
• Act as a contact person for NDIS queries, at your request
• Collect and collate additional evidence, if required by the NDIS, to ensure timely completion of the access process
• Follow-up with the NDIS on the status of the application
• Assist you to understand and seek a review of the NDIS decision or appeal the decision (if required)
