Mental health and the NDIS
Reimagine.today is co-designed with people living with mental health conditions including psychosocial disability.
Many of the people involved in reimagine.today have lived experience of the NDIS, and have used their experience to help you better understand the NDIS and the opportunities for people living with psychosocial disability.
reimagine.today will help you understand what the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is and how it can support people living with a mental health condition. If you live with a mental health condition, you may be able to get NDIS funded support if your mental health condition causes you to experience very high levels of ‘psychosocial disability’. Before understanding the NDIS it is important to understand what psychosocial disability is.
