Who is MHF?


We have a community highlight from WIN News...


Hi everyone,

With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the 1 July, the Mental Health Foundation ACT is working to bring about new and innovative ways for people with mental illness and psychosocial needs to access appropriate supports.

Here at MHF, we have a number of programs, including Outreach and Accommodation Services and the Rainbow (psychosocial club house) that provides NDIS approved activities.

To view the list of MHF activities, please see the NDIS tab on this website.

If you think MHF will satisfy your support needs, we encourage and welcome you to make contact with us. Once you have made initial contact one of our experienced coordinators will call and make an appointment for a face to face meeting to discuss your needs.

We will offer you support with your NDIS application and help you identify and access supports that will continue and enhance your independence. Additionally, we can help you to complete your NDIS workbook, support you through the planning process and if you wish, we can provide care coordination of your NDIS package.

MHF strongly encourages and supports you to exercise choice and control over your NDIS package and activities.
