NSW CID is alarmed by the lack of action on the mental health of people with intellectual disability in the NSW Government's response to its Mental Health Commission's Strategic Plan.

For 60 years, there have been peak groups specifically representing people with intellectual disability both in NSW and in Canberra.

So the New Year has begun and as the tinsel from last year has been packed away in the office it has been replaced with fresh calendars work plans, meetings and much enthusiasm for the year ahead.

As 2014 comes to an end NSW CID wanted to give you an update on our news.
NSW CID has kept having a strong voice about issues that are important to people with intellectual disability.

There is considerable community concern about the NSW Government's decision to close ADHC as the NDIS is rolled out in NSW.

It is now only ten days until the NSW CID Conference – Challenge Change Create.
