Policy report

NDIS and psychosocial disability – the Victorian story

Insights and policy recommendations from expert stakeholders

20 Mar 2018
Description

In parallel with the national report, the University of Sydney research team and Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA) were commissioned by Mental Health Victoria (previously called VICSERV) and Salvos-connect Barwon to focus in upon the experiences of consumers, family members and services providers engaged with NDIS in the Victorian's Barwon trial site. While many of the issues are consistent with those identified in the national report, there are distinct differences. Of greatest note was the apparent greater proportion of state mental health budget that had and continues to be transitioned across to the NDIS and thus the greater services gaps for the majority of Victorians living with serious mental illness who are not eligible for the NDIS.
