PIRPartners in Recovery (PIR) supports people with severe and persistent mental health issues, along with their carers and families. It facilitates multiple support services to address their complex care needs and improve their wellbeing.

Brisbane South PHN (BSPHN) has partnered with 10 non-government organisations that specialise in servicing the community with an understanding, empathetic approach that enable goals to be reached and lives to be changed.

PIR promotes collective ownership and encourages innovative solutions to ensure effective and timely access to the services and support required by patients with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs. The program aims to sustain patients’ optimal health and wellbeing.

PIR works with people to:
