State Parliament Social Development Committee Report in to NDIS

In September 2018 the Social Development Committee began an inquiry “into, and report on the provision of services for people with mental illness under the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) with particular reference to:

1. The gap between the Federal Government’s predicted and realised percentages of mental health clients receiving NDIS support;

2. The reduction in funding to the Personal Helpers and Mentors program and Mental Health Respite Carer Support program and the impact this will have on people with mental illness;

3. The ongoing requirements for block funded mental health services provided by the State Government after the NDIS transition;

4. The effects on South Australians with mental health issues who are deemed ineligible to receive NDIS funding;

5. The sufficiency of services provided to people with mental illness who are accepted into the NDIS;

6. The effects on South Australians with mental health issues undertaking the application process for the NDIS.”

The Mental Health Coalition of SA put in a submission as well as present verbal evidence. You can read the full report, their findings and recommendations here.
