MHCC is supporting transition to the NDIS with consultation, research, representation and stakeholder engagement. This work includes guidelines for establishing a Community of Practice to assist communities transitioning to the NDIS, guidelines on distinguishing between “disability support” and “rehabilitation”, involvement in sector reference groups and initiation of a national NDIS conference for the community managed mental health sector.
Guideline for Establishing a Local NDIS Community of Practice to Enhance Learning and Sector Reform
As a result of the Hunter Trial, MHCC has developed a guideline document to encourage local communities in NSW to establish an NDIS and Mental Health Community of Practice (CoP) when transitioning to the NDIS. The guide is for use by organisations that provide services to people affected by mental health conditions, their carers and families. We encourage you to consider establishing a local CoP to enhance learning arising from NDIS implementation and other mental health sector reforms.
