CMHA – Third National NDIS and Mental Health Conference

February 4 - February 5

The NDIS rollout is largely complete and the dust is settling, now is the time to look forward.

The past 18 months has seen the transition of people with primary psychosocial disability into the NDIS and significant changes in the interface with mental health supports and services. We have also had the impact of COVID-19 and the mental health sector’s response.

Each state has had its own timings, learnings and takeaways from the NDIS national rollout. Now is the time for us to come together to share our experience to date and look at what comes next.

The Third National NDIS Mental Health Conference streams explore lived experience, innovation, human rights and the interface.

Speakers include Productivity Commission Commissioner Dr Stephen King who will update us on the Productivity Commission review in to Mental Health and Gerry Naughtin, NDIS Special Advisor, NDIS Independent Advisory Council. You will also hear from Christine Morgan, CEO of the National Mental Health Commission and National Suicide Prevention Adviser to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Hon Stephen Wade, South Australia’s Minister for Health and Wellbeing.

We will also have a special message from The Hon Stuart Robert MP Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and South Australia’s Chief Psychiatrist Dr John Brayley.

Key notes will be from Professor Mike Slade and Dr Louise Byrne and you can read more about them here.
