Summary

​The Pathways to Community Living Initiative, or PCLI is a ‘major system change’ in the approach to caring for people who have severe and persistent mental illness who have long hospital stays or are at risk of long stays.

This report, by the Centre for Health Service Development, University of Wollongong presents the findings of a qualitative organisational case study of mental health service reform processes and the resulting practice change at two primary implementation sites for the PCLI – Hunter New England and Western Sydney local health districts.

The report presents evidence that the PCLI has contributed to establishing contemporary care pathways across settings and sectors, as well as ensuring  the principles of person-centred, recovery-oriented care are embedded in practice.
