Partners In Recovery (PIR)

This program is delivered to residents in the Gunnedah Shire by GoCo as a member of a consortium of service providers led by Mental Health organisation, Flourish.

PIR helps people living with severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. Individuals requiring complex support plans will be guided through multiple recovery journey check-points and milestones, receiving the right support at the right time. For example, an individual with a mental illness in need of accommodation and employment services will be guided toward and connected with the most suitable services in the timeliest manner. Importantly, families and friends of people living with a mental illness will also be guided on how to provide recovery-focussed stability and support for loved ones.
