How do IMPACT and the NDIS work together?

IMPACT provides NDIS services in Queensland. The National Disability Insurance Scheme operates state-wide across Queensland. We’re a registered National Disability Insurance Agency provider that helps people with a disability achieve their goals. Services include day programs, life and living skills, social and community engagement, supported employment, support in training and education. Through the NDIS and the help of IMPACT, people with a disability will be able to work towards their life goals.

What kind of support will someone with mental health receive from the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme will not support psychiatry services or medication, however, they will assist in finding housing, developing your skills in financial independence and building social relationships as well as supporting you in training and employment.

Who is eligible for mental health services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

According to the NDIA, people dealing with “a psychiatric condition who have significant and permanent functional impairment” qualify for the NDIS mental health services.

NDIS and Mental Health Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme isn’t just limited to individuals that have physical disabilities. A person who is living with mental health (psychosocial disability) that significantly impacts their life may also be eligible. In fact, more than 1800 Australians with a psychosocial disability are receiving support under the NDIS in trial sites around Australia.
