I am excited to participate in the 2018 SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women in Support of Women’s Wellness Programs at BC Women's Hospital. As someone who experienced both post-partum depression and anxiety, this project is close to my heart.
The Run for Women will give women new tools to combat post-partum depression. Through an innovative research project at BC Women’s, women from across BC will have easy access to web-based treatment for depression – through an app! There are evidence-based treatment options that help – but far too often women do not get the diagnosis and treatment they need. They suffer in isolation. Your donation will help to develop a web-based psychological intervention for women with Post-partum Depression – the SUPPORT app – which will also be specifically adapted to meet the unique needs of Indigenous and newcomer women in BC.
