Neami National, with cohealth and North Western Mental Health are conducting a project to evaluate the effectiveness of the Northern and Arion Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) services in Victoria.
Just over 100 consumers participated in the research project (53 from Northern and 53 from Arion PARC). As part of this research project, the research team had produced short summaries of the different aspects of the research update.
- Changes in distress and unmet needs
- Changes in recovery
- Stressors and coping strategies of consumers
PARC services provide short-term site based support for people who are at risk of requiring hospital admission or who are leaving hospital and require additional support to successfully transition back into the community and avoid relapse. They offer 24-hour support and a range of individual and group rehabilitation and recovery programs.
