This Hub was co-designed with people living in rural and remote areas with lived experience of mental health concerns, as well as their carers and other supporters. Two groups, one in Launceston, TAS and one in Ceduna, SA worked on these resources over 18 months in 2019 – 2020. 

We’ve made resources for you in plain English, to simplify the NDIS, and address some of the barriers faced in rural and remote areas. Most of these resources are handy to print and use offline. We hope these resources help you along your NDIS journey.
