Event description

Description

Held over two days in Sydney in November 2017, the NDIS Mental Health Conference is an opportunity for the Mental Health sector to work together to make the most of this new scheme. With the conference theme ‘towards a good life’, there will be a focus on the transformational potential of the NDIS for people living with a psychosocial disability.

The conference is aimed at the broad range of NDIS mental health stakeholders, including community mental health workers, people with lived experience, public and private sector mental health workers and Government representatives. Up to 500 delegates are expected over two days, helping you to expand your professional network and fostering collaboration within the sector.

At the end of December 2016 there were 4,764 Australians with a primary psychosocial disability receiving support under the NDIS, but 59,000 more are expected to qualify once the scheme is rolled out across the country. These participants will be able to tailor their own support packages, which will require an innovative and flexible community mental health sector.

Through discussions, presentations, and informal conversations, the conference will build the sector’s capacity to respond and grow through the transition. Attendees will hear about examples of best practice, discussions lessons learned at trial sites, and develop positions that will influence the ongoing development of the scheme.



Please be advised:
Registrations are only available for specific, named individuals who will be attending the conference. It is not possible to purchase generic places where the attending delegate is not yet known. Please determine who will be attending before attempting your booking.
Registrations may not be shared between delegates. Each person must register separately and places may not be "split" between people. Those not wishing to attend the whole event, may purchase a single day registration or tickets to selected conference events, but cannot use part of another delegate's ticket.
