How does PIR work?

PIR helps individuals with prolonged mental health concerns and complex needs, connect to the services they need in their journey of recovery. PIR will also be taking a lead for these individuals in supporting them to gather clinical evidence to support functional impact for their NDIS application.

PIR provides a Facilitator to work with individuals, their family, friends and carers. The Facilitator will walk alongside the individual, helping them to draw on their own strengths and natural resources.

In addition, PIR will also be guiding individuals through a list of supporting evidence which will become a part of their NDIS application. This will include PIR Facilitators working with service providers to obtain clinical reports on diagnosis, treatment and evidence of a permanent psychosocial disability.

Working with PIR

PIR works 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.

PIR Gold Coast has been very fortunate in learnings from other regions when it comes to the roll out of NDIS. This has provided insight into the best approach for the gathering of clinical evidence to support an NDIS access application.

If you have any questions regarding how you can support your clients with an NDIS access application, please feel free to contact us on the above intake line or via our online enquiries here.
