Important Video Alert on NDIS Gaps

Victorians affected by mental illness are missing out under the NDIS trial

This short film has been developed around Geelong consumers' and carers' experiences of the Victorian NDIS who are missing out in the current NDIS trial. 

Right now this is affecting people in Barwon. But during the next government term it will affect the whole state. 

The Victorian government has done something different to every other state in the NDIS trial. It has completely replaced the community-managed mental health sector with the NDIS. So if you don’t get into the NDIS, there is nowhere left to go. 

Community-managed mental health services are a critical part of our mental health system. Without them we see increased distress for individuals and families. More pressure on our hospital system. And whole communities will be affected.

This is not just a mental health issue, it’s a community issue and, without doubt, a significant election issue.
