News on NDIS and Workforce Implications

In 2015 HCA completed a report on the likely workforce implications of the coming NDIS implementation in the community mental health sector under the project management of the NSW Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC). We are delighted to let you know that the final project report is now publically available and can be downloaded here.

The report was sent to Mental Health Australia NDIS Capacity Building Project Advisory Group members in early August 2016 and distributed through the MHA CEO’s weekly e-news shortly after.

HCA takes this opportunity to thank MHCC, in particular Tina Smith, and a number of community mental health organisation peak bodies in each state and territory and other organisations (in particular the National Disability Service) for many contributions to the project. It was a big and complex piece of work that will be of benefit across a range of NDIS and other MH reform activity over the next few years.

Tina Smith will be presenting on the report at the TheMHS Conference on Thursday 25th at 1:30 PM on the project. You can learn more about the conference by clicking this link and we will no doubt see proceedings notes in due course.
