NDIS Individual Supports Design Project
The Individual Supports Design Project (the Project) is a collaboration involving the National Disability Insurance Agency, Mental Health Australia and Community Mental Health Australia. The Project has been established to document optimal packages of individual supports for people who have a psychosocial disability associated with a mental illness.
The project included the commissioning of stakeholder feedback to provide valuable insight into current performance, as well as future needs and opportunities. The outcomes of the consultation process is now available.
This report presents the key findings of feedback from mental health consumers, carers, service providers and other informed stakeholders across Australia.
The consultation was the second step of a three step process involving the preparation of a report investigating typical support packages (the Synergia Report); stakeholder feedback (the consultations) and a report mapping stakeholder feedback against the NDIA’s current processes to identify areas for improvement and further investigation.The final project report is nearing completion. It will be made available to the NDIA’s National Mental Health Sector Reference Group, following which key findings will be made available publicly. It will include a document that maps the suggested supports against the NDIA support catalogue.
