Partners in Recovery

Partners in Recovery (PIR) is a free service that supports people with severe and complex mental health concerns to figure out where they want to go and how to get there.

If you feel that you or someone you know may benefit from and be eligible for PIR please contact your region below. If you are referring a client or family member, ensure you have their consent before referring them.

PIR is not a crisis service. If you are experiencing an emergency please call 000

Talk to your GP

Mental ill health can impact negatively on your physical health, just a physical health problem can affect your mental health. You can talk to your GP if you feel sad after a relative has passed away, if the pressures of life are making you unhappy and anxious, or if you feel angry or confused.

GPs don’t just prescribe medicines for mental health conditions. They can also help you to access therapies and point you towards specialist help.

Some face-to-face services are subsidised by Medicare. If you and your GP think you would benefit from accessing this type of service, your GP will prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan and make a referral to an appropriately qualified provider.
