About the Autumn Forum

We are delighted to announce a TheMHS Autumn Forum in Sydney on the 28th of April 2022. Recovery, Rehabilitation and Psychosocial Disability in a persistently complex system.

For people with psychosocial disability, the mental health system and NDIS are complex and often unwieldy.  There is a labyrinth of services, programs and providers from the public, private, and NGO sectors.

In this forum we will unravel concepts of recovery, rehabilitation, psychosocial support, and psychosocial disability.

Together we will identify the challenges and barriers for people to achieve good outcomes in this increasingly complex system.  We will also consider whether it has even been possible to adapt a recovery orientation to psychosocial disability services and the NDIS. It is unclear how rehabilitation services fit within the system. Some organisations are now exiting as NDIS providers while some are remaining within the funding model of the NDIS. Others are finding new models, perspectives and ways of supporting people’s psychosocial needs.
