Funding for mental health services to quadruple under NDIS


Funding for mental health services will quadruple as the government prepares to transition service providers to the national disability insurance scheme (NDIS).

The federal government has set aside $1.8bn in the NDIS for mental health services. It currently spends $450m on community care programs, many of which will fall under the NDIS umbrella when the program is fully operational.
