If you are a carer or family member

Partners in Recovery (PIR) recognises the important role carers and family members play in the care and recovery of a person with severe mental health issues.

If an individual agrees, a Support Facilitator will talk to carers and family members to discuss the services and support you feel would be most helpful.

Once a team of services and supports has been identified the Support Facilitator can provide the necessary coordination to ensure access.

The Support Facilitator will also regularly check the program to make sure everything is going to plan, to iron out any problems with the program and continue talking to carers and family members.

At the wish of the individual, carers and family members will always be involved unless of course there are legal or other compelling reasons not to.
