The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was established in Australia a couple of years ago to improve the access and quality of lives of Australians with disabilities. Unsurprisingly, Aussies with ME/CFS are routinely being denied access to the NDIS. Emerge Australia has launched a new petition asking the Australian Minister for Families and Social Services, and the National Disability Insurance Agency, to: 1. Partner with the ME/CFS community to develop appropriate guidelines for NDIS assessors. 2. Add ME/CFS to List B of permanent conditions where further assessment is required. 3. Recognise that people with ME/CFS should not be required to have undergone Graded Exercise Therapy or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in order to access the NDIS as these treatments are no longer recommended and may cause harm. Please sign the petition and share widely! Edit: This petition is open to anyone, not just Australians. https://www.change.org/p/the-minist...ronic-fatigue-syndrome-to-list-b-of-the-ndis?
