Welcome to my little nook, a safe space where your mental health matters.
I'm Anneliese Lawton, a Burlington-based mom of three who's had a crash-course in parenting. I'm also 1 in 4 who lives with and experiences mental illness.
In 2020, I accessed the St. Joseph's Women's Health Concerns Clinic while navigating a third bout of perinatal depression. As an OHIP covered program, I didn't have to worry about the associated costs for tending to my mental health - because as silly as it sounds, taking money away from my three kids for ME felt selfish...even though investing in ME is exactly what they needed.
As the 2023 Community Champion for the Shopper's Drug Mart Run for Women, I'm so excited (and honoured) to give back to a cause that helped me find light in my own darkness - and I would love for you to join my team.
Come sit with us (talk with us, cry with us, laugh with us) and walk with us,
