NDS is hearing that the mental health and wellbeing of participants is a key concern amongst disability service providers in Victoria. This, coupled with the recent findings of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System, is signaling that the state’s mental health system is failing to adequately support Victorians with disabilities.

In this interactive session, we want to hear the perspectives of disability services on mental health data collection.

Specifically, what sort of data does your organisation collect about participants in relation to their mental health and wellbeing? What feedback do you have on the sort of data the government collects? Are there any specific ways data could be best collected in order to improve the experiences and outcomes of people with disabilities while accessing mental health services?

Our aim is to improve safe access to mental health services for people with disabilities, improve the responsiveness of the system to the needs of people with disabilities, and address key challenges in navigating the mental health and wellbeing system in Victoria. 

Who should attend?

NDS encourages senior leaders, operational managers, front line managers and front line staff to attend this interactive and consultative session.
