Service coordination

Central Adelaide and Hills Partners in Recovery (CAH-PIR) is a free service supporting people with severe and persistent mental illness with complex needs, as well as working with their carers and families.

PIR Support Facilitators assist in bringing services together to work collaboratively and in a more coordinated and integrated manner.

Service coordination can be useful when services people are receiving are not working well together, or if people are not receiving any services they need to live well in the community

Central Adelaide and Hills Partners in Recovery and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

CAH-PIR is funded until 30 June 2019. Throughout this time, we will continue to assist people who meet eligibility for the program

In South Australia, the NDIS began to rollout to adults in the Adelaide region in 2017 and will continue in 2018 in the following regions:

  • Northern Adelaide: 01 July 2017
  • Southern Adelaide: 01 January 2018
  • Western and Eastern Adelaide: 01 April 2018
  • Adelaide Hills: 01 April 2018

During the transition period we will provide support to people moving to the NDIS by:

  • Providing information about NDIS to the community, with a focus on psychosocial disability
  • Assisting eligible PIR consumers to gather the information necessary to determine if they meet NDIS requirements

For people who either don’t meet access requirements, or choose not to apply, CAH-PIR will continue providing a service. You can learn more about the NDIS by visiting the NDIS website or contact Neami's NDIS Services

Eligibility

The eligibility criteria vary for our different programs. Please contact this service to discuss whether our programs are suitable for you.

Referrals

Individuals, carers, families, mental health professionals or other healthcare providers can make a referral. If referring someone else, before you do so, you must discuss the referral with the individual.

We encourage referrals from people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, youth and refugees.

Call 1800 894 448 to be guided through the referral process.

You can download a referral form from the CAHPIR referrals and information page
