Gold Coast Partners in Recovery (PIR) is comprised of a consortium of six local organisations, including the Mental Health Association Australia, Gold Coast Medicare Local, the Mental Illness Fellowship Queensland, FSG, Ozcare and Aftercare. Our PIR organisation forms part of a national government initiative which has seen Partners in Recovery consortia established all over the country, after input from carers and individuals in relation to system gaps and challenges.
We invite individuals, services and the community to work with us to find ways to change the system to better support mental health and wellbeing. Our purpose is to directly assist individuals who have experienced prolonged mental illness and have experienced difficulty accessing the supports they need on their recovery journey. We provide facilitators to assist individuals, families and/or carers to address system barriers. We invite services to join in recovery-oriented practice to strengthen mental health service delivery through partnerships and coordination. We aim to inspire change and growth in individuals, services and the sector.
