Partners in Recovery and Open Minds

The 2011/12 Federal Budget provided $549.8 million (over five years from 2011/12 to 2015/16) for the Partners in Recovery (PIR): Coordinated Support and Flexible Funding for People with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness with Complex Needs initiative.

For Clients

Partners in Recovery (PiR) helps you connect the dots between all of the different supports and services in your life, and ensures you stay organised while working towards your personal recovery goals. PiR aims to better support you by simplifying the coordination between your clinical services, natural supports and community based recovery models. With PiR you can experience ‘wrap around care’ that is tailored to your specific needs. PiR is not a new service; rather the program will assist you to better coordinate your existing services and supports.

PiR is recovery orientated and person focused, assisting you on your journey towards recovery and reconnection with the community.

For Professionals

Partners in Recovery (PiR) helps people to connect the dots between a wide range of supports and services, ensuring clients and their natural supports stay organised while working towards personal recovery goals. PiR is not a new service, rather the program aims to better support people with severe and persistent mental illness, their carers and families to navigate existing services and supports and the mental health system.

The ultimate objective of the PiR initiative is;
  • Facilitate better coordination of clinical and other supports and services to deliver ‘wrap around care’
  • Strengthen partnerships and build better links between various clinical services and community support organisations
  • Improve referral pathways that facilitate access to a range of services and supports required by the PIR target group
  • Promote a community based recovery model

PiR is recovery orientated and person focused, assisting individuals to maximise their capabilities through social and environmental opportunities. To find out more about PiR at Open Minds, please click here
