HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A PSYCHOSOCIAL DISABILITY?

To be eligible for the NDIS, you must:

  • Be under the age of 65 when you apply.
  • Be an Australian citizen or live in Australia as a permanent resident, and have a postal address.
  • Live with a ‘severe and enduring’ diagnosed mental health condition.
  • Struggle to carry out essential daily living tasks.
Have a permanent, or ‘likely-to-be’ permanent disability as a result of your mental health condition.
- this must have a significant impact on your daily life; including,
- communication, social interaction, learning, mobility, self-care and self-management;
- this must impact your ability to participate in the community;
- it also needs to be likely that you will need support for the rest of your life.
