Event description

Description

Are you a service provider, consumer or carer with questions about the NDIS? Are you unsure about how it will affect mental health services? If you answered yes, then our FREE Navigating the NDIS course is for you!


With the NDIS being rolled-out state-wide, now is a great time to learn more about how it will affect you. This course will help you maximise the potential of the Scheme to support the people you work with.


You will walk away with the essential knowledge and skills needed to access, plan, and innovate within the Scheme. The course is structured around real life examples that will help you understand the potential for positive change.


With the Scheme still evolving, there remains some uncertainty about how mental health fits into the framework of disability. With this in mind, significant time is devoted to discussion and answering your questions.
Learn how to:

  • Navigate the NDIS, including eligibility, access, planning, coordination and review for people living with mental health conditions

  • Engage consumers, carers and providers in the new opportunities available to them

  • Gather evidence of disability or impairment to assist people with their access requests

  • Use innovative approaches to get the best results possible for those you support

This interactive one-day session be facilitated by Tina Smith, MHCC's Senior Policy Advisor and NDIS expert. Her research into the experience of mental health services, including consumers and carers during the NDIS trial in the Hunter region has given her a unique insight into the workings of this new system.

MHCC is rolling out 21 free public NDIS workshops across NSW. Please register for a free ticket for your place at the Penrith workshop. PLEASE NOTE: There is a limit of 3 free tickets per organisation.

Registrations close a week before the event.
