Queensland Transition to NDIS for Mental Health Strategic Forum

The Queensland Transition to NDIS for Mental Health Strategic Forum (QTN Forum) provides a mechanism to discuss the specific issues for people who live with a mental illness, mental health service providers, representative bodies and state and commonwealth governments in the plans to roll-out the NDIS in Queensland.

The role of the Forum, chaired by Kris Trott, CEO of QAMH, is to develop a shared vision for a future service system once NDIS is implemented. The members will work together to consider issues and plan for the implementation of NDIS in Queensland.
