Leap in! has created this free guide to help people with mental health conditions and their families learn more about accessing the NDIS and the types of supports that may be available.
The NDIS can provide ongoing, lifelong support for people who experience severe impairments as a result of mental health conditions. The NDIS can also provide funding for essential supports and services which are tailored to your needs.
It is expected that the NDIS will ultimately support around 64,000 participants with severe and persistent mental health conditions.
However there are many people with psychosocial disabilities (those arising from a mental health condition) who may be eligible but are not accessing NDIS supports.
