There are links on this page to a range of resources for PIR participants and potential participants. These links include information about PIR and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and how to access them both.
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. From an NDIS perspective, participants are people with disabilities who are eligible, or applying to be registarered NDIS. There are many useful links on this site, the main access ones are as follows:NDIS in Tasmania– introduction video

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