YDAS recently completed a submission to the inquiry into the provision of services under the NDIS for people with psychosocial disability related to a mental health condition. While we commend and support efforts to meet the needs of people with psychosocial disability through the NDIS, we caution the Committee against placing mental health services purely within a disability framework, and our submission outlines this concern.

YDAS is committed to ensuring that all young people with disability have the support they need to actively participate and be included in the community. To this end, we are committed to working with the Commonwealth and Victorian governments to refine the interfacing arrangements between the NDIS and other service systems so that all young people with disability can access the support they need, when they need it.
