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.
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:
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.
