Partners in Recovery (PIR)
Richmond Wellbeing is the lead agency for Partners in Recovery (PIR) in the Bentley-Armadale region. PIR provides a genuine collaborative and inclusive approach, identifying gaps in the mental health system by connecting people from all communities (including Aboriginal, culturally diverse and LGBTI people) to the right care providers who can link and build capacity. Our aim is to complement and connect existing services through Network Membership and promote cultural sensitivity throughout the sector. With your care providers working together, you’ll receive ‘wrap-around’ services and get the support you need. We can also assist you with the NDIS in the Armadale area.
Personal Helpers and Mentors service (PHaMs)
The PHaMs program assists people aged 16-65years, whose ability to manage their daily activities is severely impacted by mental distress. In a coaching style support relationship, you’ll receive holistic supports that are integrated and complementary to the existing services in your community. You don’t need a formal diagnosis of a mental illness to initially access the program. We can also assist with NDIS applications in the Bentley and Midland areas.
Individualised Community Living Strategy
The Individualised Community Living Strategy (ICLS) is a community-based program that provides tailored support for people who have experienced extended periods of mental ill health. We assist you to live independently in your own home, and support you to develop a clear plan for the future. We’ll work with you, your family, your mental health services and other significant people or groups in your life, to develop a recovery plan tailored to you. Get support in your own home today.
Visit the Mental Health Commission website for more information.
Recovery Outreach Service
Our Recovery Outreach Service (ROS) is available via internal referral and provides up to six months’ recovery coaching and assistance, to people who are exiting Richmond Wellbeing supported accommodation sites and require some support settling back into the community. A natural extension of our service, we assist people to transition to independent living in the community and develop skills to take ownership of their lives over time.
If you’re ready for one-on-one support and encouragement, and assistance to improve your daily living and connections to community, ask your Richmond Wellbeing support worker about our Recovery Outreach Service.
