Supporting families and carers

We understand that families and carers play an essential role in supporting people living with severe and persistent mental health issues.

Supporting someone living with mental health issues can be challenging at times and we know that you may also need supports. If the person you care for is currently a Partners in Recovery participant and consents to sharing information with you we can help you in your caring role.

Partners in Recovery is not accepting new referrals from 30 June 2016.

If the person you care for is not a PIR participant please refer to the Recovery and NDIS Resources page for information on services that may be able to provide support.

We are continuing to provide care-coordination support to existing PIR participants and supporting them to transition to the NDIS.

Getting in touch

If the person you care for is an existing PIR participant you can contact us to discuss Partners in Recovery and NDIS transition support.
