Building the Evidence Base for PARCS
Exciting news for Prevention and Recovery Care Services (PARCS) in Victoria!

The University of Melbourne has been successful in their Partnership Projects grant application to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
 
The project, officially titled ‘Building the Evidence Base for Prevention and Recovery Care Services’, involves seven inter-related studies designed to evaluate the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of Victoria's Prevention and Recovery Care Services (PARCS), which are residential services for people with severe mental disorders.
 
The project involves a partnership between universities, PARCS providers (including both Neami Northern PARC and Barwon PARC services), clinical services and the Victorian Government, and will actively engage service users and their carers and other experts.
 
The success of this grant represents an exciting opportunity to consolidate and extend the work that has been done to evaluate PARCS in Victoria at such an important time in the ongoing development and expansion of these services. Getting grants from the NHMRC is highly competitive so this is a great achievement.
 
The program officially started on July 1. Stay tuned for updates.
