Mental Health, NDIS & the Federal Election – Open Forum

NDIS report finds fewer people eligible than first predicted
April 16, 2019

The 2019 Federal Budget showed a $1.6bn underspend on the NDIS with the rollout slower than expected, especially in South Australia for people with primary psychosocial disability.

Temporary funding to June 2020 was announced with $122m allocated for three key Commonwealth mental health programs but their future remains uncertain.

Access to housing remains problematic and is a key building block for good mental health.

In the lead up to the Federal Election, we want to know who has the best policy for supporting people living with mental illness both within the NDIS and outside of it.

Our Federal Election Forum – will be on Tuesday 30 April at The Stamford, North Tce, Adelaide.

The forum will start at 10:30am and end at 11:45am.

To be moderated by The Advertiser’s Social Affairs Reporter Lauren Novak, this FREE forum will allow you the voter to ask the questions.

The MPs who will be taking your questions are;

Mr Tony Zappia, Australian Labor Party

Senator The Hon David Fawcett, the Liberal Party of Australia

Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, The Green 

Centre Alliance, to be confirmed
