Mental Health Reform

The pace of mental health reform currently underway in Australia is transforming the service environment and raising challenges as well as opportunities for service providers.

MHCC ACT is committed to building the capacity of the community-managed sector to respond and adapt through the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We play an important role engaging with policy-makers to ensure the Scheme’s success and advocating on behalf of members, consumers and carers to ensure their concerns are addressed. 

The NDIS has enormous potential to improve the lives of people living with psychosocial disability. On this page you will find material relating to our work addressing the impacts of the NDIS and contributing to mental health reform.

Our priorities are:

  • Increased Government investment in community-based services,
  • Improved NDIS responsiveness to the needs of people with mental health issues, and
  • Improved transparency and partnership with consumers, carers and service providers.
