About Us

The Partners In Recovery is a program available to people in the Sutherland and St George local government areas who:

  • Experience ongoing serious mental illness
  • Find it difficult to access services and supports they want and need
  • Want to improve their wellbeing

Partners In Recovery staff called Support Facilitators, will work with you to identify what is important to you right now and in the future. They will then link you to the services and supports in the community that you want and need. Support Facilitators also build partnerships in the local area to improve services and help you access what you want and need for your recovery journey.

Once a referral is received, our PIR Intake Officer will respond within 48 hours. After the referral has been assessed and accepted the person will be allocated a Support Facilitator. If Partners In Recovery is not a suitable program for some, our team will find out who else can help. This is called our ‘No Wrong Door’ Policy.

 

 

 

Not only does SES PIR provide support for individuals experiencing severe and persistent mental illness on a direct service level, one of the key objectives of Partners In Recovery is to promote systems change within the community sector. SES PIR have done this through focusing on improving referral pathways, strengthening partnerships in the community and using and promoting recovery oriented practices. We have also developed a Gaps and Barriers For Action in South Eastern Sydney Report and coordinated a number of projects to address the service gaps identified in the region.

"I have people I can contact and people available to me that I didn’t know existed. I always thought there were only one or two services out there that could help me but Matthew (my Support Facilitator) gave me a whole list."

"When working with consumers who are homeless and suffering with mental ill-health it is so important to have a flexible approach in order best meet their needs. We are very appreciative of PIR staff coming to our Tuesday breakfast program each week where they have become very well known to our consumers who are often happy to now self-refer and address problems with PIR before it becomes a huge issue."
