How Funds Raised Help Women Seeking Care at St. Joe’s
Anneliese's Story | 2023 Run for Women Community Champion
- Funds raised through the Hamilton edition of the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women support the work of the Women’s Health Concerns Clinic (WHCC) at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. The WHCC is internationally-renowned for its excellence in treating the mental health concerns of women throughout their life cycles – from premenstrual dysphoric disorder to bipolar disorder; as well as changes in mood and anxiety as a result of pregnancy, the post-partum period or transitions during menopause.
- Funds are also supporting programs specifically designed to treat the mental health and substance use needs of women in our community. Womankind Addiction Service is a 26-bed facility located in West Hamilton providing gender-responsive care for those looking to change their substance use. Our Seniors’ Mental Health Service helps women living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, as well as mental health or behavioural concerns that can be related to aging or existing diseases.
- And the Youth Wellness Centre provides care to youth aged 17 – 25 in Hamilton’s downtown core. Gender affirming, culturally sensitive care provided by a diverse group of staff members help youth who are living with anxiety, depression, substance use and more.
- By granting funds to multiple programs at our Hospital, we’re ensure that every woman living with mental health or substance use concerns, regardless of their age or diagnosis, can benefit from the funds raised through the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women and the exceptional care provided by our care teams.
