The NDIS has rolled out a new psychosocial stream, to help Australians with severe mental health problems.

But mental health organisations are concerned the new service is leaving many behind, with around 91% of mentally ill Australians unable to access the stream. Funding cuts to traditional services are forcing some mental health organisations to shut down, limiting the help available to struggling Australians.

Without steps to ensure a sustainable mental health service is available to all Australians, many may be left in the lurch.

To find out more about the service and how to apply, vist the NDIS website or Reimagine Today.
