Community Engagement Education Package (CEEP)

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has provided NSW Information, Linkages and Capacity-building (ILC) Jurisdictional Grant funding to co-design a Community Engagement Education Package (CEEP) during 2018/2020. You can read more about the project here


The CEEP project is about exploring and community capacity building for strengthening social inclusion of people living with mental health conditions, and MHCC and the NDIA agreed that the learning resources will target the following groups:

  • Community Workers (non-mental health, eg, homelessness, emergency services, etc)
  • Volunteers working, or interested in working, with people with mental health conditions and/or their representative organisations (eg, SVDP Compeer, Volunteering NSW), and
  • Peers; this means people with lived experience of mental health conditions and their families/friends whether paid or unpaid supporters.

The CEEP will assist Community Workers, volunteers and peers across NSW and Australia to better support people living with a mental health condition and/or at risk of developing psychosocial disability who are ineligible, or do not want to have, a funded National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan.

The CEEP learning resources will be trialed in one metropolitan (Central South Eastern Sydney) and one rural (Western NSW) location.

MHCC has developed this webpage to host findings and learning arising from the co-design process as well as the learning modules to be trialled and refined. The learning resources will be freely available to all interested people. A final Project Report and Good Practice Guide will be developed to provide a framework for individuals, programs, organisations and communities about the different ways the CEEP Learning Resources can be used.

Co-design Working Groups

The co-design process focuses on the involvement of people who are ineligible, or do not want to have, a funded NDIS plan. MHCC will hold four Co-design Working Groups in each of the two trial sites.

  1. Reports from December 2018 co-design
    Central South Eastern Sydney
    Western NSW
  2. Reports from May 2019 co-design
    Western NSW
    Central South Eastern Sydney
  3. TBA
  4. TBA
Webinars

MHCC will host three free co-design webinars.

  1. MHCC will host a 29 May 2019, 10:30 – 11:30 AM AEST webcast in partnership with Being (the NSW consumer peak body) and Mental Health Carers NSW Inc (the NSW carer peak body). The focus is to tell people about the project (the draft CEEP learning framework arising from initial co-design will also be discussed) and consult with them about the key project question:
    How can Community Workers, volunteers and peers learn to better support people living with mental health conditions to have a good life outside of a funded NDIS package (i.e. to better access mainstream and community services)?

Trial Learning Resources – coming in August 2019

The draft CEEP learning framework arising from initial co-design consists of six learning modules (subject to change pending further co-design and trial activity):

  1. Recovery
  2. Community inclusion
  3. Supports and services
  4. Mental health and the NDIS/ILC
  5. Trauma (creating healing environments)
  6. Self-management.

The learning materials linked to the modules are (subject to change pending further co-design and trial activity):

  • Videos
  • Learner Guides
  • Facilitators Guides
  • Learning Activities
  • PPTs.

The Project Report and Good Practice Guide will outline a range of ways that people can use these resources.
