Kylie completed her PhD in 2007, is an NDIS brainiac and is doubly brainiac-y on all things NDIS mental health. She has over 15 years experience working in the mental health, disability and aged care sectors. Kylie has extensive experience designing, implementing and evaluating mental health programs. Through her experience as a carer of her brother-in-law, Kylie has also developed a passion for assisting organisations to develop Specialist Disability Accommodation.
In the course of her work and studies, Kylie has developed advanced skills in the management and development of staff, program design and establishment, stakeholder and consumer engagement, and budget management.
Only a tiny proportion of people who experience mental illness will be eligible for the NDIS. Kylie takes a detailed look into what criteria people with psychosocial disability have to meet to access the Scheme.
The announcement that ‘mental health’ was going to be included in NDIS was met with a mixture of excitement and worry. However, as Kylie explores, gaps between the health system and NDIS are beginning to emerge.
The division of responsibilities between the NDIS and the Health system is marked by misinformation and inconsistencies. In this article, Kylie highlights three key problem areas that have the potential to undermine cooperation in service provision.
Kylie Morgan cuts through the confusion around NDIS mental health supports, breaking down what we currently know about which programs will transition and how.
For too long, the SDA has been a complicated enigma for the sector. Kylie Morgan unpacks the Summer Foundation and PricewaterhouseCoopers' new and critical report and shares her four key take home messages.
