BACKGROUND: Owing to difficulties faced by individuals with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) in accessing multiple services, the Australian Government trialed a care coordinated service model called the Partners in Recovery (PIR) initiative.

MATERIAL: A total of 45 stakeholders in Gippsland were asked what difference the initiative had made.

DISCUSSION: The PIR initiative benefited not only clients and carers but also service providers. It addressed an unmet need in service delivery for individuals with SPMI.

CONCLUSION: The PIR initiative has filled a gap in delivery of care for individuals with SPMI in Gippsland.
