For many years - over half my life - I have suffered with depression and anxiety. I was brought up to believe that this is something not to be shared. Well times are changing - thankfully. I saught out help, and have recently completed Congnitive Behavioural Therapy through Ontario Shores. Anxiety and Depression for me are things that I will need to live with, but now know how better to cope with the onset of both, and accept that this is part of my life and the doesn't make me any less of a person.
As women, we carry the burden of so much inside of us. We need to band together and help one another. I am walking in the 5K Run for Women to help other women, just like me, to get the help then need. I ask that, if you can, you help by donating and supporting what I KNOW is a good cause.
I am excited to participate in the Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart program in support of the support of the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart Women’s Clinic at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores)
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.
