About Mental Health NDIS Access Support

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to people with a disability, including people with severe mental illness. NDIS support can help with doing everyday activities and connecting with community.

The Mental Health Community Support Services (MHCSS) Intake Service are assisting people with a mental illness to test their eligibility access the NDIS. We work collaboratively with family, carers and other services to help people to understand, engage in and complete the NDIS access process.

Who is this for?

You may be eligible for this service if you:

  • Have a mental illness
  • Have severe difficulty with day to day tasks
  • Need help to apply for access to NDIS for support

What to expect

  • Assist you to gather supporting evidence and complete the Access Request form
  • Liaise with health services and general practitioners/private psychiatrists
  • Act as a contact person for NDIS queries, at your request
  • Collect and collate additional evidence, if required by the NDIS, to ensure timely completion of the access process
  • Follow-up with the NDIS on the status of the application
  • Assist you to understand and seek a review of the NDIS decision or appeal the decision (if required)
