Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm
PIR helps individuals with prolonged mental health concerns and complex needs, connect to the services they need in their journey of recovery. PIR’s ultimate goal is to help individuals who have previously struggled to get the support they need.
PIR provides a facilitator to work with individuals, their family, friends and carers to identify system barriers and gaps. The facilitator will walk alongside the individual, helping them to draw on their own strengths and natural resources. In addition, PIR will help coordinate their journey as they access community support and navigate the system towards recovery.
Working with services to improve coordination using a recovery-oriented approach. For example, a PIR Facilitator may coordinate with an individual, their case manager, the individual’s natural resources, and other services (e.g., peer support, housing) to meet identified needs.
Strengthening partnerships and building better links within our community. For example, PIR support the Heads Up Consortia by engaging key stakeholders and actively contributing to collective initiatives.
Working with individuals, service providers and the community to promote practices that nurture hope and wellbeing. For example, PIR provide recovery-oriented practice training for a broad range of services and community groups.
Gathering information to inform change. PIR collect information on the barriers people with lived experience of mental illness face in their recovery journey, in order to engage services and funders in conversations around potential solutions. Services are welcome to join the discussion with their own observations.
