A new guide developed jointly by the Australian Government and Flinders University will support mental health providers in making it easier for people with a psychosocial disability to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The guide provides practical advice based on providers’ own experiences.

It helps simplify the NDIS requirements, such as explaining how clients can test their eligibility and meet NDIS criteria. The guide was field tested with the mental health sector, consumers, and carers to ensure it is helpful and easy to use. It builds on work occurring in the National Disability Insurance Agency to improve pathways for people with psychosocial disability and work underway by the Productivity Commission and the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS.
