PS My Family Matters was founded by Gisborne mothers, Tamara Wilson and Louise Hunter, in 2014. PS [Parents and Siblings] My Family Matters aims to provide support to family members and carers of those suffering with a mental illness, within the Macedon Ranges and Sunbury.
Numerous interactions with health professionals operating in the field, the experiences of other carers and a review of the service availability to those seeking assistance, led Tamara and Louise to a belief that there was not enough support nor resources for the families and carers of those with a mental disability, particularly in regional areas like the Macedon Ranges.
To ensure parents/carers and siblings living with a family member with mental illness are supported through direct
access to relevant local information and linking to appropriate support services in their local community.
Facilitating a network of peers for mutual support in an environment of understanding and respect.
Assisting with practical support for families in crisis by educating local businesses and community support networks of the
opportunities to assist.
