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.
We also learnt of this new website called ReImagine,aimed at helping people with Psychosocial disability learn to address NDIS criteria. Here is a Workbook they created to help with eligibility and pre planning. They also have a workbook: ReImagine Workbook
