Optimising support for psychosocial disability

 

Mental Health Australia is managing an exciting project which aims to develop alternative ways to provide support for NDIS participants with psychosocial disability than those currently on offer at this stage of NDIS rollout. Over the coming months, Mental Health Australia will be working with consumers, carers and other experts through a Delphi process to refine a set of alternative typical support packages. The starting point will be existing evidence, including empirical service use and outcomes data held by providers.

By aggregating and analysing existing service level data, two major products will provide an alternative set of policy and procedural reference points for the NDIS which better reflect the needs of participants with psychosocial disability:

  1. A list of optimal psychosocial services
  2. Appropriate aggregation of these services into typical support packages
