Event description

Description

"Are you confused about how NDIS will affect your service?"

"How will the people who attend your services be affected ?"

"Will partnerships and collaboration in the EMR be affected by NDIS?"

Our region is about to experience the biggest change since the introduction of Medicare. EMHSCA is keen to ensure all our partners are prepared for this significant shift in service provision.

This full day forum will provide an opportunity for health and community service providers in the Eastern Metro Region to gain clarity in relation to their various roles within an NDIS environment.

We will also explore the role of partnerships and collaborative practices as this region prepares for the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for people experiencing psychosocial disability in relation to mental illness.

The morning will include a range of key speakers from relevant peak bodies and a mental health and partnership focussed panel discussion.

The afternoon will be structured to provide tailored information to Clinical Mental Health, Community Mental Health, AOD, Homelessness/Housing, Family services, DHS and Community services staff. This will be delivered across three separate rooms. A leadership discussion for EMHSCA partners will be held concurrently.

As this event is being provided on International Overdose Awareness Day there will be a session provided by the ACCESS Health & Community Alcohol & Other Drug service aimed at raising awareness and increasing our knowledge on this important topic.

All health and community service providers are welcome and RSVP is essential.

Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided, along with all day tea and coffee facilities.
