Is mental illness covered by the NDIS?

  • The NDIS provides support for those whose mental illnesses impede their ability to lead a fulfilling life.
  • It’s important to understand that the NDIS doesn’t finance therapy for addressing mental illness symptoms, but rather focuses on continuous functional aid for daily living.
  • To qualify for mental health assistance under the NDIS, individuals must provide evidence of their psychosocial disability and how it affects their daily life.
  • Eligibility isn’t solely dependent on a specific mental health diagnosis, but rather on how the condition impacts daily life.
  • Those with psychosocial disability, requiring aid in areas like communication, social interaction, learning, mobility, self-care, and self-management, may be eligible for an NDIS plan.
  • Support under the NDIS might encompass funding for therapies, transportation assistance, aid in setting goals and managing finances, as well as help with various daily tasks and activities.
  • Eligibility criteria for the NDIS include age, residency, and disability requirements.

Tips for access NDIS psychosocial support

  • Your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or Coordinator of Supports plays a vital role in helping you gather the necessary evidence for your NDIS application.
  • Keeping a diary of daily challenges can ensure that the support you require on difficult days is well-documented and understood by your LAC.
  • Requesting your doctor or specialist to provide notes at each appointment and organising these in a systematic folder along with other relevant medical history can be beneficial.
  • When creating a written statement for the National Disability Insurance Agency’s (NDIA) consideration, seeking input from friends and family about your functional ability and the supports that could enhance your quality of life can add valuable perspective.
