As clarified by Phil Watson (Acting Manager – Neami National MHCSS Intake)…The NDIS rollout in Bayside-Peninsula catchment commences on 1 April 2018. Neami Central Intake will cease accepting MHCSS referrals from 1 April 2018.
Clients / consumers who may benefit from mental health support and are aged from 16 – 65 yo are encouraged to contact Neami on 1300 379 462 to initiate the MHCSS referral process as soon as possible. Please note that consumers who are either on the Neami wait list (by 30 March) OR have existing MHCSS packages, will be supported to transition into the NDIS.
