MHCC ACT Submission to the Join standing Committee's Inquiry into the NDIS Workforce

MHCC ACT would like to thank the Joint Standing Committee for the opportunity to make a submission on the NDIS work force. MHCC ACT feels that it would be redundant to go into detail on matters that have already been well researched and published. We have opted to provide the committee with a selection of previous publications with findings and recommendations still pertinent now. If implemented they will greatly assist in achieving the NDIS as it was envisioned at its conception: to provide people with a disability with high quality and innovative supports to maximise their independent lifestyles and full inclusion in the community.

MHCC ACT Submission - Moving Canberra: Integrated Transport Draft Strategy Submission

MHCC ACT’s submission will focus on the needs of people living with mental illness and their carers, referred to as ‘lived experience’ who use public transport. People with lived experience of mental health issues are often socially isolated. Access to safe public transport is one method of reducing such isolation yet the evidence shows that as a cohort they travel less.
