Partners in Recovery
What is it?
Partners in Recovery (PIR) is a national mental health initiative funded by the Commonwealth Government aiming to facilitate the recovery of people with severe and persistent mental illness and complex needs, by connecting and linking them more effectively to the services and supports they need. PIR recognises the needs of carers and families and their role in the recovery journey as well.
The PIR program also provides an opportunity to identify gaps in the mental health system and collaborate with participating organisations to improve the referral pathways for all those affected by mental health issues.
We help your recovery by:
- Meeting with you to assess your needs.
- Assigning you a dedicated Support Facilitator to work alongside you.
- Understanding your hopes and life goals.
- Developing a personalised recovery plan.
- Linking you into a range of services and supports to meet your goals.
- Assisting you to apply for NDIS and support you through the process.
Please note that PIR is not an emergency or crisis response service. In an emergency please contact:
Mental Health Emergency Response Line 1300 555 788
or Crisis Care Helpline on 9222 3111
Who runs the program?
PIR is run by a team of experienced mental health professionals.
We are responsive and adaptable to your unique needs and recovery goals and will work with you to tailor a recovery plan that is unique to you. This means you make the decisions as much as possible about your individual recovery journey and the services you need.
We will work collaboratively with other organisations to achieve the best possible referral pathways, service linkages and recovery outcomes for you, your family members and other supports.
