Quarterly Community Forum - The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) & MHCC Consumer and Carer participation

The Mental Health Community Coalition ACT, the ACT Mental Health Consumer Network, Carers ACT, and Mental Health, JH&ADS invite you to a forum to discuss:  The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) & MHCC Consumer and Carer participation.
 
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Wendy Kipling – ACT NDIS Taskforce
Wendy will give an update on the progress towards preparing for implementation of the enhanced service offer from July 2013 and the NDIS in the ACT from July 2014. Wendy and MHCC also want to hear from consumers and carers in particular about what you know and want to know about the NDIS, what you want and need from the NDIS, and how we can help you prepare for the NDIS.
 
MHCC ACT consumer and carer participation
MHCC is about to embark on a project to explore how to make genuine and meaningful consumer and carer participation in MHCC governance and activities possible. MHCC would like to share initial thoughts before starting this journey.

We also want your thoughts on the interim actions MHCC wants to put in place in the coming months to provide more meaningful opportunities for consumers and carers to be involved in the work of MHCC and for MHCC to be able to draw on the lived experience of
consumers and carers to shape and inform our work.

The Quarterly community forum is on Monday 25 March, 5.00 pm – 7.30 pm, Griffin Centre, Civic. Click here to view the flyer.

Your active participation in discussion is welcome and appreciated.
