Mental Health Partners in Recovery

Partners in Recovery

Our Partners in Recovery program works with the community, primary health care providers and partner organisations to provide high quality, person centred, equitable and accessible healthcare and support to our local community.

As part of a consortium through the Central Adelaide and Hills Medicare Local, the program aims to assist services and supports to work in a more collaborative, coordinated and integrated way for people with severe and persistent mental illness and complex need, and their carers and families.

Support Facilitators will work with clients to identify how services could be better coordinated, and strengthen the relationships between their services.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible you must:
• have complex needs and require support for multiple services
• have, or may have, a mental illness that is severe and persistent
• have had recent contact with services and they are concerned about your mental health and/or other issues
• are accessing existing services and the coordination of these are not meeting your needs
• consent to being involved in UCWB - CAH PIR.

What can you expect from UCWB - CAH PIR?

• We will involve you and your carer (if you wish) in the planning and decision making around your support
• We maintain hope that you can receive the appropriate supports and services you require
• We are recovery focussed
• Support facilitators to navigate the system with you and on your behalf

Referring an individual

When completing your referral to PIR, along with personal information, please outline the services requested and reasons for referral with particular attention to the person's needs surrounding, for example:

  • housing
  • education
  • employment and income support
  • daily living skills
  • physical and mental health


This information needs to be provided in enough detail that the PIR Organisation can make an informed initial assessment of the person's eligibility to participate in PIR.

Referrers will be notified when the PIR Organisation receives the referral and the outcome of the referral. In the event that referrals are not accepted, reasoning will be provided as to why and the person may be referred back to the referrer with advice of other supports or services more suitable for the person's needs, or the PIR Organisation may directly refer the person on to another service in consultation with the referring agency.
