NDIA Mental Health Reference Group Update

Last week OTA attended on behalf of AHPA and presented at the NDIA Mental Health Reference Group, which is made up of consumers, carers, peak associations, NDIS Independent Advisory Council members and key government representatives including Mental Health Commissions. We took this opportunity to spotlight the important role of mental health OTs in the NDIS and raised concerns that we have about some of the recommendations relating to psychosocial disability in the NDIS Review Independent Report.  

OTA attended the National NDIS Review Conference hosted by Communities of Practice in Canberra last Friday. We heard from key representatives outlining the foundational supports strategy and NDIS Provider and Worker Registration Taskforce. 

OTA will also be attending the NDIS conference hosted by DSC in Sydney on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 March, to hear from experts and key decision makers.
