Final note…

People’s experiences are unique. People’s needs for health and disability services may change over time. The NDIA is working to meet the needs of people living with a psychosocial disability and will continue to review the NDIS from a mental health perspective.

In the ‘2016 National Report on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention’, the National Mental Health Commission stated that the NDIS is important. They also noted concerns about the NDIS for people with mental health conditions, including:

  • Eligibility for people with psychosocial disability
  • Which mental health programs should be included in the NDIS
  • Quality/pricing of psychosocial supports
  • Emerging gaps in services
  • Support for carers of people with psychosocial disability
  • Availability of services that help people early
  • Supporting people, workers and services to transition
  • The impacts of other mental health reforms, as well as reforms in mainstream health and disability systems.

These and other NDIS challenges are not the focus of the resource. has been developed to help people access the NDIS.

The learnings arising from the NDIS will continue for years and the NDIA and others will work to refine the NDIS based on people’s feedback. This includes consideration of people’s support needs, outcomes and satisfaction.

Thanks and all the best.
