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 to the services and supports they need.
PIR works with local communities to ensure that people with persistent mental illness are recognised for their strengths and are treated as valued members of society. We support people throughout their recovery process, including supporting people to improve their own health and wellbeing, making positive choices and accomplish goals that are important to them.
The service is free of charge and run by a team of experienced mental health professionals. Support Facilitates at PIR work alongside individuals to support their road to recovery.
Support Facilitators help individuals to:
- Find the right places to get help
- Facilitate the coordination of services involved in a person’s recovery
- Advocate when necessary
- Make sure service providers are meeting the needs of the individual
- Help the individual or carers to understand how to best access services and support in the community.
