This seems to be a tricky area for many practitoners when trying to transition their clients from deceased funding options to the NDIS. We have gathered some resources to help guide you. Let us know if you have any suggestions or feedback for us about your own experience with the NDIS eligibility and a Psychosocial disability.

Accessing the NDIS

Psychosocial disability is a term used to describe a disability that may arise from a mental health issue. Not everyone who has a mental health issue will have a psychosocial disability but for those that do, it can be severe and longstanding and impact on somebody’s recovery.

People with a disability as a result of their mental health condition may qualify for the NDIS.
