In 2018, Mind funded Deakin University’s research project Understanding people with psychosocial disability as choice-makers in the NDIS. A.K.A. Choices, an outcome of this research project was a wealth of information from consumers about how they navigated the Scheme and got the best packages, including how to deal with planning and review meetings.
Mind summarised the advice from the consumer participants and commissioned Walkley Award-nominated comics journalist, political cartoonist and editor Sam Wallman to illustrate a booklet Peer advice for people with psychosocial disability applying for the NDIS.
We recommend this booklet (available in digital format only) to anyone needing psychosocial support looking to access the NDIS for the first time, but also those who may be coming up for a review.
