From 1 December 2020, all NDIS registered providers in Western Australia (WA) will transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission). This will require all NDIS registered service providers who currently undertake accreditation against the National Standards for Mental Health Services (NSMHS) to prepare for certification or verification against the NDIS Practice Standards.
The Mental Health Commission have funded Quality Innovation Performance Consulting to develop of a suite of fact sheets which can be accessed by all mental health service providers to support them in their preparation for certification or verification against the NDIS Practice Standards – see below. A fact sheet relating to Positive Behaviour Support and Restrictive Practices will be released by the Mental Health Commission in due course.
Fact Sheet A - Psychosocial Support Service Delivery
Fact Sheet B - Policies and Procedures
Fact Sheet C - Training Requirements for NDIS and NSMHS
Fact Sheet D - Consumer and Carer Engagement
Fact Sheet E - Business Management
Fact Sheet F - Safety and Quality Systems
Fact Sheet G - Diversity and Cultural Safety
Fact Sheet H - Service Agreement (between provider and participant)
Fact Sheet I - Positive Behaviour Support and Restrictive Practices
