The NDIS funds:

  • Disability supports that are not clinical in nature and that focus on a person’s functional ability, including supports that enable a person with a mental illness or psychiatric condition to undertake activities of daily living and participate in the community and social and economic life.

Mental health system funds:

  • Supports related to mental health that are clinical in nature, including acute, ambulatory and continuing care in the community, rehabilitation/recovery.
  • Early intervention supports related to mental health that are clinical in nature, including supports that are clinical in nature and that are for child and adolescent developmental needs.
  • Residential care where the primary purpose is for inpatient treatment or clinical rehabilitation, or where the services model primarily employs clinical staff.
  • Supports relating to a co-morbidity with a psychiatric condition where the co-morbidity is clearly the responsibility of another service system (for example, treatment for a drug or alcohol issue).
