Supporting people living with mental health issues

Partners in Recovery and Transition to the NDIS

Partners in Recovery supports adults who are living with severe and persistent mental health issues who need help accessing a range of different services.

New England PIR has been operating in the region since 2013.

We are continuing to provide care-coordination support to existing PIR participants and will also be supporting current participants to:

  • Find out more about the NDIS
  • Test their eligibility for the NDIS
  • Apply for an NDIS Individual Funded Plan
  • Connect PIR participants to services to achieve their goals.

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

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

Getting in touch

If you are an existing PIR participant you or a family member/carer can contact us to discuss Partners in Recovery and NDIS transition support.
