Partners in Recovery

Partners in Recovery (PIR) is a program which aims to better support people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs, along with their carers and families.

We do this by encouraging the relevant services and supports from multiple sectors to work in a more collaborative and integrated way. This promotes a community based recovery model, encouraging innovative solutions to ensure more effective and timely access to services and supports.

Who is eligible to access the service?

A person with a severe and persistent mental health diagnosis who has complex needs can access the service and receive support with housing, income support, disability, education, and employment as well as accessing suitable clinical services which support  their recovery.

Is there a cost to accessing the service?

There is no cost to accessing the PIR program.

How is the program delivered?

Support Facilitators are appropriately skilled and experienced individuals who work with the client to develop a tailored action plan so that the client can reach their perceived goals. The Support Facilitators will better link and coordinate services for the PIR client and avoid duplication of services.

How do I refer to PIR?

A person can refer themselves. A carer or service provider can also refer to the service with the client’s consent or willingness to participate.
