Partners in Recovery

Partners in Recovery (PIR) is a support coordination service for people with a severe and persistent mental illness.

Our Support Facilitators can help participants navigate the system to access mental health services, supports and resources to assist in recovery.

Who is Partners in Recovery for?

PIR is for people:

  • Who have a severe and persistent mental illness,
  • Which significantly impairs functioning, and
  • Who have become disconnected from social or family support networks; and
  • Are seeking support to access an NDIS package

The PIR program is closing on 30 June 2019, and is currently working to transition participants of the program into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

See the Partners in Recovery transition to the NDIS below.

From April 2019 onwards, all new referrals to the PIR intake team will be closely managed. The PIR intake team will primarily be focussed on providing support to referrers about alternate service pathways for people living with severe and complex mental illness.
During this transition period participant support remains the top priority. Our intake lines are remaining open, and our intake team are available to answer any questions and assist in facilitating onward referrals.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers in Australia. The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

PIR is not a crisis support service.
In an emergency please call Triple Zero ‘000’

Each of our PIR programs is run by a consortium of local agencies that work together to deliver and govern the program.
