Peer-led NDIS Engagement Activity with Mental Health Consumers & Carers on Palm Island

In 2016, the Queensland Alliance for Mental Health (QAMH) worked in partnership with the Townsville-based mental health service provider Supported Options in Lifestyle and Access Services (SOLAS) to deliver a peer-led National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Activity on Palm Island, funded by Mental Health Australia from funding provided by the Department of Social Services.

The project sought to understand why engagement with the NDIS on Palm Island had been low, and to bring together key learnings from peer-led community consultation activities. These consultations sought to identify the opportunities, facilitators and barriers to building the capacity of the community to actively engage with the NDIS.
