What Is Partners For Recovery?

Partners is a community support program to help improve services, systems of care, and supports for those being treated for substance use and mental health issues. Meetings are open to anyone with an interest in mental health issues and advancing the quality of life for members and people with mental health conditions.

Some points about PARTNERS FOR RECOVERY:

  • At Partners for Recovery Meetings, you can have fellowship with others in a place where everyone can share their stories and experiences in recovery.
  • As a member of this group, you can have a voice in how money for mental health services is spent and how services can serve people better.
  • You can help the group make a difference in the community and alleviate the stigma of mental illness in society.
  • We welcome visitors who would like to take part in meetings and help us see more clearly what is working and what is not working in the local Mental Health Community.

We believe that “By promoting the principles of recovery and making relationships in the community, the Fayette County Partners for Recovery is educating and providing public awareness of mental health”.

Partners for Recovery meet the last Monday of every month virtually via the Microsoft Teams Platform.

Principles of the Community Support Program

Person-Centered/Person-Empowered

Services are based upon the needs of the individual in order to make informed decisions to live happy and healthy lives.

Flexible

Services are designed to allow people to move in and out of the system and within the system as needed.

Culturally Competent

Services are sensitive, respectful, and responsive to racial, ethnic, religious, and gender identities of individuals and families.

Coordinated

Treatment services and supports are coordinated on both the local system level and on an individual basis in order to reduce fragmentation and to improve efficiency and effectiveness with service delivery. Coordination is driven by the needs of the individual and includes collaboration with families, advocates, and professionals at every level of the system of care.

Designed to Meet Individual Needs

Services are designed to meet individual needs of persons affected by factors such as age, substance use, physical or intellectual disabilities, homelessness or houselessness, or criminal justice system involvement.

Accountable

Service providers are accountable to the users of services and include individuals and families in planning, development, implementation, and monitoring and evaluating services.

Community-Based/Natural Supports

Services are provided in the most supportive and inclusive manner. Individuals are encouraged to use natural supports and integrate into the living, working, learning, and leisure activities of the community.

Strengths Based

Services build upon an individual’s strengths and values to empower their recovery and encourage each person to maintain a sense of identity, self-esteem, and dignity.
