Submission to the inquiry into the provision of services under the NDIS for people with psychosocial disability related to a mental health condition
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.
