Some mental health issues are specific to women. Others are different for women than men. That's why a program dedicated to women's mental health is essential.

In 1998, we created the Women Recovering from Abuse Program (WRAP), Canada's first day-treatment centre for women with childhood trauma. Today, we're emerging as an international force in women's mental health.

The Women's Mental Health Program at Women's College Hospital is unique in Canada. We help women who have depression and anxiety associated with menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause; women who have psychiatric and psychological issues that result from early life abuse or neglect; and women who have mental health issues associated with medical conditions (such as diabetes or heart disease) and their treatment.

And when it comes to postpartum depression, we've created a new kind of mother-baby program to help moms with parenting in the context of mental health challenges.

The interdisciplinary Women's Mental Health Program provides innovative, women-centred mental health treatment, education and research. We work collaboratively with patients who experience the psychological after-effects of trauma, medical illness and/or challenges related to their reproductive health.
