Our world went through some unprecedented challenges in recent times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, the isolation and lack of support have put a strain on the lives of everyone especially on differently abled people. The distress caused by the increased risk to the virus combined with reduced access to healthcare services also took a toll on their mental health. We recently celebrated World Mental Health Day on October 10 and this year’s campaign slogan by World Health Organisation (WHO) is “Mental health care for all: let’s make it a reality.” This marks the importance of schemes like NDIS which truly makes it a reality by being inclusive.
Navigating through Mental Health access under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be quite tricky as NDIS support is centred on the impairment and not the diagnosis. That means not everyone with a mental health condition experiences disability. Your NDIS access depends on the impact of your mental health condition and how the impairment hampers your daily functional capacity. You become eligible for NDIS support
if you are primarily diagnosed with a psychosocial disability and you can provide evidence that it disrupts your ability to conduct day to day life activities. Classy Life is an NDIS service provider
and we are here to help guide you through your NDIS plan. We will help you understand the eligibility requirements for NDIS access and assist you in reviewing and fine-tuning your plan. Our team of Registered Nurses and clinicians can make sure that the
mental health needs of differently-abled individuals are not overlooked in these tough times.
You can access our NDIS Services in and around New South Wales, particularly in Central Coast, Hunter New England, Orange and Wagga Wagga
