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

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

In the Adelaide region, the NDIS for adults has rolled out in Northern Adelaide (01/07/17) and Southern Adelaide (01/01/18). It is due to roll out in Western, Eastern Adelaide and the Hills on the 01/04/18.

During the NDIS rollout, CAH-PIR will continue to assist people who meet eligibility for the program. The program will also have a focus on transitioning people across to the NDIS by:

  • Providing information about the NDIS to the community, with a focus on psychosocial disability.

    For more information about what we are doing in this regard see the Central Adelaide and Hills Psychosocial NDIS Communities of Practice.

  • Assisting eligible PIR consumers to gather the information necessary to determine if they meet access requirements

For people who don’t meet NDIS access requirements, or choose not to apply, CAH-PIR will continue providing a service.

CAH PIR is funded until the 30 June 2019.

You can learn more about the NDIS by visiting the NDIS website or contact the CAH-PIR NDIS Resource Coordinator
