Checklist: Mental Health Carers NDIS Checklist

Mental Health Australia and Carers Australia have developed a Mental Health Carer Checklist, and a Mental Health Carer Guide to prepare for NDIS assessment and planning meetings.

This checklist is designed to assist carers to describe the support they provide to contribute to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) planning process for someone with a psychosocial disability. It is not a compulsory part of the NDIS planning process and you do not have to complete it. It may be of use to you in the preparing for your participation in planning sessions or in talking to the NDIS about your role. It should be read in conjunction with ‘Guide for mental health carers on the NDIS’ developed by Carers Australia and Mental Health Australia. The guide provides information about your role as the carer in the NDIS and what supports are available for carers through the NDIS. 


Download the Mental Health Carer Checklist (PDF) here. Don't forget to check out the guide too.
