The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new national approach to access support for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers. This includes people living with mental illness. To learn more about the NDIS, please click here.
Currently in Western Australia, there are two trial models of the NDIS being run concurrently. Each model has differences in accessibility and eligibility. Presently, the trials for the respective models are being run in the following areas:
WA NDIS Trial Areas
NDIS Trial Areas
Participants wishing to access NDIS support are limited at this stage to the areas listed above. For people residing within the trial sites, the following steps can be taken to access the NDIS:
Once you have confirmed you are eligible using the relevant checklist, call the National NDIS on 1800 800 110 or WA NDIS on 1800 996 214 and request an Access Request Form. This form will be mailed to your address by the relevant service provider.
Follow the instructions from the National NDIS or WA NDIS to get your plan underway.
You will then meet with your allocated Local Co-ordinator / Personal Planner.

Meditation is the guided practice of quiet sitting in a comfortable up right position with attention to slowing down breathing, relaxing and release of the body tension. Calming the mind helps greater clarity to emerge and encourages self-awareness. Meditation is a great tool to develop physical and mental wellbeing. It is an excellent holistic approach to managing stress and anxiety.
In order to have a healthy mind it is imperative to have a healthy body. It is vital to enmesh the two in order to function as well as possible. During this time there is a dedicated Personal Trainer available to participants.
There can be many benefits to those who write regularly as they share their thoughts with a piece of paper. One of the biggest benefits is that it brings closure,
an appreciation of the little things and begins to close down our negative judgements of self.
JOC is currently funded entirely by the Mental Health Commission and by the generosity of grants from Lotterywest. Unfortunately, programs that we offer are limited by the funding we receive.
Donations will be used to support or expand existing programs, and develop new initiatives for our members. All programs delivered by JOC aim to improve the mental health, social wellbeing and overall quality of life of adults living with a diagnosed mental illness.
We respectfully acknowledge that we work on Aboriginal land and pay our respects to community members and elders, past and present.
