NDIS Resources

The best place to find more  information about the National Disability Insurance Scheme is on their website which has a section for People with Disabilities (including Psycho Social Disabilities - the new term for what used to be called mental health issues), and a section for participants.

The first stage of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) began in Tasmania on 1 July 2013 for young people, aged 15 to 24. Read about how you can access the NDIS in Tasmania.

From 1 July 2016, the NDIS began to roll out by age groups.  This will take three years.

Partners in Recovery is keen to hear stories from people with a lived experience of mental illness - or their carer.  Tell us stories about trouble you have experienced getting a particular service - or when the service you experienced was not what you needed.  All stories help us understand.  Some stories are placed on our web page - they are anonymous - we change names, places and other identifying information to protect people's privacy.
