For Service Providers
South Eastern Sydney Partners in Recovery (SES PIR) aims to promote a community based recovery model to underpin all clinical and community support services delivered to people experiencing severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs, comorbidities and/or comorbid substance use. Partners in Recovery is targeting 24,000 people across Australia, however by improving system coordination, it is envisaged that this improvement will have a flow on impact for a larger number of individuals. By developing a shared vision of a system that offers recovery orientated, holistic and personalised support for all individuals, Partners in Recovery aims to connect communities at all levels.
South Eastern Sydney Medicare Local is the lead agency for Partners In Recovery in the St George and Sutherland local government area and is delivered in partnership with a range of non-government organisations. Neami National, The Benevolent Society and St George Migrant Resource Centre are currently delivering the program across the community, with a fourth agency, Aftercare, joining us in 2015.
Partners In Recovery staff called Support Facilitators, will work with people to identify what is important to them in relation to their personal recovery. They will then link people to the services and supports in the community to meet their needs. Support Facilitators work to ensure supports are working together to meet a person’s needs and also build partnerships in the local area to improve access services and referral pathways.
