The Partners in Recovery (PIR) and Personal Helpers and Mentors Service (PHaMs) programs concluded on 30 June 2019. Existing participants of the PIR and PHaMs programs will transition to either the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or the Gippsland Psychosocial Support Program (PSP). The transition period extends to June 2020, however transition for most clients will commence sooner. 

New referrals that previously would have been made to PIR should be redirected to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or the Gippsland Psychosocial Support Program (PSP) as appropriate.

If you require immediate support please contact one of the following agencies:

Lifeline: 13 1144 or visit lifeline.org.au
Mensline: 1300 78 99 78 or visit mensline.org.au
