Summary  The implications of psychosocial disability being included in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are not yet fully understood. It is anticipated that approximately 57,000 people with continuous and enduring psychosocial disability across Australia will be eligible for support under Tier 3 of the NDIS. They will be able to make choices about the supports that are “reasonable and necessary” to meet their needs. While there is some work currently being undertaken to prepare staff in the sector for the change, until now there have been few projects focused on the implications of the NDIS from the perspective of people with psychosocial disability.
In response Mind Australia has funded an innovative research project that has sought to:
• provide the CMMHSS and other stakeholders with an understanding of support needs and preferences of people with psychosocial disability and the types of changes needed to develop more responsive services in the transition to NDIS.
• give people with psychosocial disability the opportunity to have a voice in stating their preferences for support.
