The latest news
An key development in mental health has been the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS, into areas of WA. This roll-out is scheduled to continue across the state, and as a healthcare provider, you need to know how the NDIS can assist and benefit the lives of your clients, along with their families and carers.
As a service provider, what do I need to know about the NDIS?
The NDIS provides fully funded and customised support for people living with a mental health condition or a physical impairment that is enduring. The NDIS will ensure every Australian aged 0-65 with an eligible disability is given fair and equitable access to funding and services. Health care and service providers can assist people to learn about the NDIS and refer them to NDIS service providers for further support and assistance with the NDIS.
