Does the NDIS cover mental health conditions as well?

IS depression covered by NDIS?

Yes. The NDIS does cover mental health but they use the term psychosocial disability (PDF) to describe any functional impairment, arising from mental health issues.

Therefore NDIS will perform an assessment. While not everyone with a mental health condition will experience psychosocial disability, those who do can experience severe effects and social disadvantage. People with a significant disability – one likely to be permanent – may qualify for NDIS support. If they don’t qualify, the NDIS will link them to appropriate supports in their local community. For more information about mental health and mainstream services, check out the factsheet on NDIS website.
