The National Disability Insurance Scheme represents a major reform in disability care in Australia, supporting people with a permanent and significant disability to reach their goals and participate in their communities - this includes people with psychosocial disabilities stemming from mental health conditions.

This website shares information, resources and tools on mental health and the NDIS, recognising that the needs of people with psychosocial disability may be quite different from those of people with other disabilities.

It is primarily designed for healthcare professionals, but may be of use to others.

TSP for all, psychosocial disability explained

This website is managed by the Transition Support Project, a group based at Flinders University, and funded by the Department of Health and the Department of Social Services. The project is funded to support the transition of Commonwealth-funded community mental health clients to the NDIS or continuity of support arrangements.

This website makes publicly available many of the resources we have developed. While we are working to ensure that all materials on this site are as widely applicable as possible, you may find some resources that are tailored towards community mental health organisations.
