Mental Health Australia rolls out NDIS Psychosocial Community Connectors program

Mental Health Australia is delighted to announce our partner organisations who will deliver Community Connector services to support people with psychosocial disability to engage with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Mental Health Australia has undertaken a selective commissioning process to fund experienced organisations to provide Community Connector services, as listed below.

Mental Health Australia CEO Dr Leanne Beagley said she was very pleased with the outcome of the selection process.

“These organisations will provide NDIS access support for people who are living with psychosocial disability, particularly those experiencing or at risk of homelessness,” said Dr Beagley.

“With dedicated organisations and individuals in the disability sector, we have long been advocating for increased resourcing to support people with additional barriers to participate in the NDIS, and that’s exactly what these programs will do.”

“We look forward to working closely with these seven partner organisations who will help deliver improved outcomes for people with psychosocial disability across seven priority Local Government Areas (LGAs).”

Mental Health Australia is pleased to be working with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to deliver this component of the broader National Community Connector Program (NCCP).

Community Connector services will begin operating across the below regions shortly, with recruitment processes underway.

The program is currently funded until June 2021.
