What does PIR do?
Living with severe and persistent mental illness often makes navigating services difficult, and it is easy for your goals to get lost in amongst the noise. A PIR Support Facilitator will work with you to better understand where you are, where you want to be, and then help you figure out how to get there.
Am I eligible?
PIR works with people who have a mental illness (that significantly impacts their day-to-day life) and, who have complex support needs that require assistance from multiple services across the community.
To be eligible to receive support from PIR you:
- Are voluntarily seeking support from PIR
- Appear to have a severe and persistent mental illness
- Have complex needs that require support from multiple services
- Need support and assistance to engage with support services
- Do not have support coordination arrangements in place (or if they are in place, they have failed)
