From Scope, Victoria:
The Bridging Project aims to build bridges between specialist and community providers of mental health services in relation to people with complex communication needs.
A person with complex communication needs cannot use speech to communicate so that others can understand them. Some people with complex communication needs may also have a mental illness.
A person with a complex communication need may notice changes in the way they think, feel and behave. This can make it hard to cope with everyday things. It can be difficult finding the right kind of help. It can be even more difficult to find the right help when a person does not use speech to communicate.
