Investigating the impact of NDIS market settings on participants with a psychosocial disability and providers

Closing date: March 2, 2020

Pre-NDIS, psychosocial supports were delivered by a skilled workforce with specialist capability and competence to practice in ways that promote recovery, as well as identify and appropriately intervene to prevent relapse, psychiatric crises and suicide risk. The type of providers, workforce and nature of supports traditionally provided to people with a psychosocial disability is evolving under the NDIS. This project will determine if differential market settings are needed to ensure providers are able to respond effectively, safely and viably to the unique needs of NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability. Have your say by completing a survey.
