Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Owing to difficulties faced by individuals with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) in accessing multiple services, the Australian Government trialed a care coordinated service model called the Partners in Recovery (PIR) initiative.

MATERIAL:

A total of 45 stakeholders in Gippsland were asked what difference the initiative had made.

DISCUSSION:

The PIR initiative benefited not only clients and carers but also service providers. It addressed an unmet need in service delivery for individuals with SPMI.

CONCLUSION:

The PIR initiative has filled a gap in delivery of care for individuals with SPMI in Gippsland.

KEYWORDS:

Care coordination; collaborative care; mental disorders; non-clinical mental health services; personal recovery; rehabilitation
