    The MHCA has been working with the National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum ( NMHCCF ) to develop some information for mental health consumers and carers about the NDIS . Because the NDIS is so new and still in a trial phase, there are still a lot of issues that have not been worked out and we are not sure what they will mean for mental health consumers and carers. Therefore we have published this information in draft form so that we can get your feedback on the sorts of things you would like to see in a fact sheet about the NDIS .

    The MHCA is keen to hear from consumers and carers about your knowledge and experiences with Australian Government Disability Employment Services via a short online survey. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and people who wish to discuss their experiences with Disability Employment Services with us in greater detail can elect to do so by providing their contact details. Otherwise the survey can be completed anonymously.
