Together with the Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry (3DN) at UNSW Sydney, SPRC has been commissioned by NSW Health to evaluate a three-year program aiming to improve the capacity of mainstream mental health services to support people living with intellectual disability, comorbid mental illness and their families (the IDMH NDIS Program).
The evaluation will assess how well the IDMH NDIS Program meets its objectives, focussing on outcomes for consumers and their families. Evaluation methods will include a review of program documentation, qualitative interviews with consumers, families, staff and other stakeholders, and analysis of quantitative program data, linked consumer outcome data across NSW Health and economic data. The evaluators work with Council for Intellectual Disability (CID) to support research team members with intellectual disability.
