There has been a need for community mental health and NDIS service providers to rapidly adapt in response to the COVID-19 virus.  This will have an impact to Participants and potentially the Family/Friends of Participants. 

As the peak body for community mental health in the Northern Territory, the NT Mental Health Coalition is working with the community mental health sector, the National Disability Insurance Agency and other peak bodies around Australia to collect feedback and collate issues relating to   

-  what changes are occurring within the community mental health sector 
-  what are the emergent issues or concerns
-  what supports would help sustain the provision of, or access to, services in the current environment

This survey is designed to capture and collate feedback from people who are Participants of community mental health programs or the NDIS in the NT.  This survey is also for Family/Friends of people accessing these programs or services.  It is important to note that this survey can be completed anonymously.

This survey will remain open for the foreseeable future and people are invited to recomplete this survey if their circumstances or concerns change.  We will collate and share your feedback regularly to the NT community mental health sector, the National Disability Insurance Agency, other peak bodies, and national and Territory decision makers.

For the most up to date COVID-19 information go to 
 - the Commonwealth Government website at https://www.australia.gov.au/
