Some mental health issues can make it hard to do day to day things like finding a job, going to work or training, catching up with friends, looking after your health – or just getting out and about. The NDIS is a new way of funding support. Instead of funding going directly to services, it will come to you, and you get to decide the supports you want to buy. This means you are in charge, and you choose what you need to live the life you want.The money for the NDIS is funded through the tax system. The costs are shared across the whole community.
