Connecting people with services and managing support

Partners in Recovery (PIR)

This program, called South Eastern Melbourne Partners In Recovery (SEMPIR), is a federally Funded program that will see Support Facilitators assist people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs, and their carers and families.

Working together to assist in your recovery and help you meet your goals

SEMPIR will facilitate better coordination of, and more streamlined access to, the clinical and other service and support needs of people experiencing severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs requiring a multiagency response to work together towards your recovery goals. We know that when people have complex needs, and multiple services and supports involved, that coordination between services can fail. This often leaves the person without the support that they need for recovery.

We can help support your ongoing recovery by finding health professionals or services to help you:

  • Manage your illness
  • Find work
  • With drug and alcohol issues
  • To manage daily life
  • Find meaningful things to do during the day
       

Participants have access to the following information and support:

  • Support facilitators will guide and provide the tools for people to navigate the support system.

               

Who is this service for?

Those who:

  • Have lived with severe and persistent mental health problems for a long time
  • Have a need to access many different services
  • Have trouble finding the help they need
  • Give consent to be involved. This includes being willing to work with a support facilitator*
  • Live in the region (Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia)
  •
