Submission to Joint Standing Committee inquiry into NDIS implementation and forecasting

Mental Health Australia has made a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS inquiry into Current Scheme Implementation and Forecasting for the NDIS. This submission highlights concerns regarding insufficient availability of psychosocial supports outside the NDIS; interface and boundary issues between the NDIS and clinical mental health, employment and housing service systems; and points to ongoing reforms required to improve the delivery of recovery-oriented psychosocial support services through the NDIS. Mental Health Australia continues to call on Australian, State and Territory Governments to address shortfalls in availability of psychosocial services, to ensure every person with psychosocial disability can access the supports they need and which are most appropriate for them.
