If you have a mental health condition, you may be able to get help from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS is a new scheme that provides support for people with disabilities. It replaces the old system of disability support, which was called DisabilityCare Australia.
What should I know about NDIS and mental health? The NDIS can help you with therapies, support workers, and equipment costs. It can also help you to live in your own home or get a job.
To be eligible for the NDIS, you must have a disability that lasts for at least six months and affects your ability to do everyday activities. You will also need to meet specific residency requirements.
If you are eligible for the NDIS, you will be assigned a case worker who will work with you to develop a plan. This plan will set out the support you need to achieve your goals.
If you have a mental health condition, the NDIS can support you to help you live a fuller life. F
The NDIS can provide you with funding for a range of supports, including:
- personal care assistance
- occupational therapy
- speech therapy
- psychological services.
