One in five Australians experience mental illness every year but the stigma remains.

Ten Australians, take part in a bold study in the hope of breaking down this stigma. Five have a history of mental illness. Five do not. The question is - who’s who?

Meet our #Volunteer of the Week, Joane, who has been #volunteering at Peter Mac for 22-years!!
.
I first came into contact with #PeterMac in 1994 due to my father's hospitalisation, Joane explains.
.
The staff were amazing and the hospital (then in Little Lonsdale St) felt like a little oasis of comfort.
.
Spending time with both parents while they undertook treatment for #cancer provided me with a level of understanding and compassion for those who are facing a similar battle.
.
When I come to Peter Mac I enjoy meeting and connecting with wonderful staff and patients through the MacChat program.
.
Thank you for everything you do Joane.

After a long 7 weeks, yet another milestone my brave soldier, Jacob has accomplished and I am so thrilled to say we have officially finished radiation!!!  Thank you @petermaccancercentre and the P1 team from the bottom of our hearts, we truly appreciate all you have done for Jacob, my kids and I. Your kindness, empathy and patience while being so professional (but “fun”) all at once really has made this exhausting journey a bittersweet farewell. Such a great team with so many amazing individuals that my kids and I will always keep close to our hearts.

Thank you so much @koalakids for gifting each of my kids these incredible costumes and for the small treasure box gifts that really do go a long way with a child’s radio therapy treatment. 
A special thank you too to the therapy dogs and their mums from the @lortsmith program that have not only kept Jacob company but have gone above and beyond with even costume coordinating!

We are one step closer to being cancer free again and I am so lucky and proud to have my brave and strong little man coming out on top each time, as well as my three other little patient peeps that are always trying their hardest to understand, love and care unconditionally. You always got this Jacob, mummy loves you all ️ #petermac #radiation #cancer #treatment #lastday #koalakids #costume #dressup #children #lortsmith #dogsofinstagram #pettherapy #thankyou
