Delivering high quality services for all mental health consumers

VCOSS Submission to the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS28 February 2017  |  

Many people living with mental illness will be ineligible for NDIS individual funding packages. VCOSS believes state and federal governments have a joint responsibility to continue funding community mental health services outside of the NDIS, so these people can access support for recovery. Community mental health services in Victoria have long provided psychosocial rehabilitation and support services, helping people with mental health difficulties stay well and able to work, study, care for their families, and participate in community life.
