CMHA – Third National NDIS and Mental Health Conference
Time & Location
About the Event
As the NDIS rollout enters its final stages this is your chance to be part of the national conversation about what comes next. This NDIS and Mental Health Conference is timely as we look at the impact of NDIS support and beyond to how it interfaces with other key systems within mental health psychosocial supports and services.
As the national peak body for psychosocial services Community Mental Health Australia is partnering in 2021 with the Mental Health Coalition of SA, South Australia’s peak mental health body.
Each state has had its own learnings and takeaways from the NDIS national rollout. For this conference we want to look to the future within the current climate. In our past conferences we have unpacked what the NDIS rollout looked like and its impact on services, now is the time to look forward.
There are many lessons we can share but more importantly this conference is about collectively taking those learnings and shaping the future of mental health services and the NDIS.
Join us as we consider how to improve human rights outcomes and increasing role for lived experience support. You will hear innovations from metropolitan, rural and remote areas.
Critical to the success of the NDIS is what happens at the interface with mental health, primary care and social and community services.
Join people with lived experience, keynotes Prof Mike Slade and Dr Louise Byrne, NDIA Special Adviser Gerry Naughton, Dr Stephen King from the Productivity Commission, the National Mental Health Commission and Federal Ministers as we analyse how this once in a generation change can best service those living with mental illness in our communities.
