Why are some people living with mental ill-health or psychosocial disability not applying for the NDIS?

20 Jan., 2022

Do you have your own experience of mental ill-health? Have you been unable to apply for the NDIS or have you chosen not to apply for the NDIS? If so, we would appreciate you completing this survey.

Are you a friend or family member, or working in an advocacy or service organisation, and are aware of some reasons why people with mental ill-health or psychosocial disability haven’t applied for the NDIS?If so, we would appreciate you sharing your insights by completing this survey.

The University of Sydney have been funded by the National Mental Health Commission to conduct a study to understand more about what stops some people, or makes it difficult for some people, to apply for the psychosocial disability stream of the NDIS. We will also be developing recommendations about how we can better support people to apply for the NDIS in the future.

To be able to participate, you need to be 18 years or older and not currently a patient in a mental health hospital. To find out more about the study and to share your experiences and insights, please click on the link.

It will take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on how much you have to say!

If you have any questions, or would prefer to do the questionnaire with us over the phone, please contact Nicola Hancock (study coordinator) on P:93519379 or Email:nicola.hancock@sydney.edu.au

This study has been approved by the University of Sydney. More info here
