Partners in Recovery (PIR)

Partners in Recovery (PIR) coordinates the care required by people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs.
A Partners in Recovery (PIR) Support Facilitator will help you identify the supports that you need. Once you and your Support Facilitator have identified the team of services and support that will help improve your care and recovery, your Support Facilitator will work with you to access those services. Particular areas of focus are physical health, mental health & mental health services, employment, accommodation, drug and alcohol problems, daily living and social activities.

Your Support Facilitator will work with you to make sure everything is going to plan, making sure you are getting the agreed services and support, iron out any problems you are having with the program and to hear how your recovery is progressing.
Partners in Recovery South West Sydney has assisted hundreds of people with severe and persistent mental illness and the services and supports they need for their recovery journey. We work with people with mental distress to:

• Identify their strengths and any needs they may have – we listen to you
• Plan their individual recovery journey – we know you are unique
• Identify services and support for their recovery – we recognise options and support your choices
• Coordinate services to ensure that their needs are met – we stand beside you

PIR is operated within a partnership arrangement with One Door Mental Health. Macarthur Disability Services is your local Support Facilitation Team, covering Campbelltown and Camden areas.
