Mind offers many services fundable through the NDIS that are both personalised and flexible enough to adjust to your needs.

If you are an NDIS participant, we can help you make the most of your plan and identify which services best match your NDIS funded Core Supports or Capacity Building budgets.

We have lots of options within our main service types for you to 'pick and mix'. You don't have to use all service types, but we do think together they provide a comprehensive approach to mental health and wellbeing - and can help you achieve a better life.

It's up to you and what's in your NDIS plan as to what mix of support services will be included in your service agreement with us.

If you want a service included which is not listed here, or have moved to an area where the NDIS has not yet fully rolled out, please call our customer service centre, Mind Connect on 1300 286 463 (or 1300 AT MIND) to discuss possible options.

We can provide counselling, coaching and other support services through video or telephone link if required. 

Mind can arrange interpreters if English is not your first language.
