What is Partners in Recovery?
Partners in Recovery (PIR) is a program where we work alongside individuals who experience ongoing mental health problems that significantly impact on their lives. We work with local support services and help services work together so individuals do not fall through the gaps. PIR Perth North Metro is currently recruiting consumers who are keen to be part of the Buried in Treasures Group.
What is Buried in Treasures?
Buried in Treasures is a self-help book written by Drs. Tolin, Frost and Steketee, who are among the world’s leading experts in the study and treatment of hoarding disorder. The book outlines a program of skill-building, learning to think about possessions in a different way and gradual challenges to help people manage their clutter and their lives (Tolin, Frost, Steketee, 2014).
Who will be the facilitators?
The group will be facilitated by experienced mental health workers and/or consumer representatives.
What will the commitment involve?
There will be a total of 15 sessions over 20 weeks and each session will last for 2 hours. Light refreshments will be provided for all participants. The group will commence on 25th January 2017. Participants will be encouraged to make a gold coin contribution. Proceeds from the contribution will be put towards the finale celebratory lunch. Participants are expected to commit to attending all the sessions as well as to participate actively. Arrangements will be made on a needs basis to help participants overcome their transport barriers.
Who can apply?
Participants from PIR and PHaMs are strongly encouraged to apply. Alternatively, you might want to discuss with your worker or clinical team if you are keen to be involved.
