Partners In Recovery

The Partners in Recovery (PIR) program supports people with severe and persistent mental health issues with complex needs, along with their carers and families. This is achieved by coordinating multiple support services to address their needs and improve the overall health and wellbeing of participants.
Who is Partners in Recovery for?

PIR is a central point of referral for people 25 to 65 years who have a severe and persistent mental illness with complex unmet needs need access to more than one service to address their needs.

Indicators of severity may be that the person:

  • is in receipt of the Disability Support Pension with mental illness being the primary reason
  • has had multiple hospital admissions due to a mental health diagnosis
  • has a psychotic disorder
  • receives mental health case management
  • is isolated and very functionally impaired as a result of their mental health condition.

Partners in Recovery (PIR) funding will transition to the NDIS at different times:
