Support for severe and persistent mental health concerns
Partners in Recovery
Partners in Recovery offers ‘wrap-around’ care that is individually tailored to your needs, connecting you to clinical and community support through one of our experienced facilitators.
It will support eligible program participants to test NDIS access and provide transitional support.
What is Partners in Recovery?
The Partners in Recovery (PIR) initiative provides coordinated support and flexible funding for people with severe, persistent mental illness and complex needs.
PIR works under a community based recovery model – by strengthening partnerships between clinical and community support services and improving referral pathways, PIR will provide you with better access to ‘wrap-around’ care that is individually tailored to your needs.
PIR is currently transitioning to the NDIS and can support eligible persons in their NDIS journey.PIR Video
Who will PIR help?
Most people who access PIR have severe and persistent mental illness, and the likely age group is mid-twenties and older. You may:
- Have been diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness
- Have complex needs that require services from multiple agencies
- Require substantial support to engage and access services
- Have no existing coordination plans in place (or previous arrangements have failed)
To access support through PIR, you need to agree to be a willing participant and be eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The PIR Consortium
A PIR Consortium has been established to enhance outcomes and address the needs of local communities. Marathon Health is the lead agency, working with Lyndon Community, Aftercare, Western NSW Local Health District, and NEAMI in partnership with other providers across the region.
