The ASU has created a specialist NDIS and Mental Health team to support workers in NDIS psychosocial disability and community mental health services.

Free workshops for workers
As part of our commitment to providing workplace information and services to members, this specialist team is conducting free professional development workshops next year. This training has been designed to support workers through the NDIS transition.

In addition to workshops in Melbourne, Geelong, the Latrobe Valley, Ballarat and Bendigo; the ASU team may be able to run workshops in your workplace. More information is available on the NDIS & Mental Health – Training for Workers schedule.

The work of the NDIS and Mental Health team
With the support of the Department of Health and Human Services, the ASU has an NDIS and Mental Health team working until NDIS roll out completion in July 2019.

For more information  check out the factsheet on how our team is building knowledge and understanding of the NDIS within the ASU and supporting the workforce during this period of change and transformation.

Research into the mental health workforce
To better represent members across the sector, the ASU is conducting research into the mental health workforce.  This research will be used to make sure you have the resources you need to deliver high quality services for consumers.

If you are able to share your experiences as part of this research or are interested in the work so far, more information is available on this important work.
