I am excited to participate in the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women in Support of Women’s Wellness Programs at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.
The SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women event in Oakville will benefit the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital’s Mental Health Department. OTMH’s Mental Health team includes approximately 120 staff and 20 psychiatrists, providing support to more than 1600 women annually, including 150 girls (17 and under). OTMH offers care and treatment for people in our community struggling with anxiety, depression, mood and panic disorders, eating disorders and other mental health related illnesses. Each year, approximately 2,000 women are supported through programming funded by the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women event. Thanks to generous donations, OTMH can offer programs such as the Halton Regional Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Inpatient Service (CAPIS), Recovery Through Education for Adolescents and Children of Halton (REACH), the Eating Disorders Clinic, the Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Service, and Outpatient Psychotherapy Services.
Exercise is the best way to manage mental health and thousands across Canada will join me to experience the healing effect of walking or running. Women’s lives are transformed one step at a time. Your donation will bring one woman one step closer to recovery.
