Partners In Recovery
The Partners in Recovery (PIR) model adopts a recovery culture that encourages self-determination and self-management of mental health and wellbeing.
Partners in Recovery supports people with severe and persistent mental health issues, along with their carers and families, by facilitating multiple support services to address their complex care needs and improve their wellbeing.
Partners in Recovery works together with people to:
- access clinical services appropriate to their needs
- access community support and related services
- coordinate services to meet their needs
- encourage a journey of recovery.
