The Commission is a partner in the research project Improving the Mental Health Outcomes of People with Intellectual Disability, funded by the National Health & Medical Research Council and led by the University of New South Wales. Two key components – data linkage to better understand current access of mental health services by people with an intellectual disability, and a review of current policy at national and state level – were completed in 2015-16. In 2016-17 the focus is on data analysis and feeding back to State and Commonwealth governments the finding of the policy review.
