Event description

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) wants to learn more about the experiences of participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) living with psychosocial disability. The National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum (NMHCCF) is convening workshops on behalf of the NDIA to hear directly from participants how to improve access and planning within the NDIS.

Workshops with a small number of participants will be held for a duration of three hours. A reimbursement of $50 an hour is available for people’s time.

Please note: The workshop will be recorded and a de-identified transcription will be provided to the NDIA. Any information that links an individual to a specific comment will be removed during the transcribing process.
