Information for GPs on accessing the NDIS for people living with mental illness and psychiatric disability.

EMPHN funded services

Psychosocial Support Service

EMPHN is supporting people living with mental illness in our community to access the NDIS.

While EMPHN’s Psychosocial Support Service supports participants living with psychosocial disability that is episodic in nature and not permanent, if ongoing support is needed Neami will support a participant’s access to the NDIS.

The Yumarrala Ngarrdji NDIS Project

The Yumarrala Ngarrdji NDIS Project, funded by EMPHN, builds capacity for community controlled and mainstream organisations to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to access the NDIS. The project, which involves Oonah, Wellways, VAHS and EACH, provide direct support for community members, resolve issues in the NDIS with NDIS participants, and focuses on NDIS pathways and resources for this cohort.
