PIR aims to support people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs and their carers and families, by getting multiple sectors, services and supports they may come into contact with (and could benefit from) to work in a more collaborative, coordinated and integrated way.

About PIR

Information about PIR - its aims and objectives and the people it will benefit.

PIR organisations

PIR organisations will work at a systems level and be the mechanism to drive collaboration between relevant sectors, services and supports within the region to ensure that all relevant needs of people in the target group are identified and met.

Capacity building project

The PIR capacity building project supports the implementation of PIR through national networking and information sharing, and provides sustained support to, and builds the capacity of, PIR organisations and support facilitators.

Resource development project

The resource development project involves the collation of existing, and development of new, resources/ tools to assist with the implementation of PIR.

Evaluation and monitoring project

The evaluation and monitoring project will determine the extent to which PIR has improved the coordination and integration of services and whether this has had an impact on the outcomes for people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs.
