About the BC Women’s Health Foundation

We are BC’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the full spectrum of women’s health. We ensure women have equitable access to the highest quality healthcare when, where, and how they need it.

Announcing our musical entertainment, Katharine McPhee!

proudly supported by RBC Wealth Management

Renowned for her powerhouse presence and show-stopping performances, Katharine McPhee possesses a voice for the ages.

Audiences first fell under her spell during a storied run on American Idol Season 5 in 2006. Since then she has released five full-length albums. Including her latest, a host of timeless jazz standards, I Fall In Love Too Easily, released in 2017.

A sought-after performer, she has taken the stage for PBS specials — including her own special — Soundstage: Katharine McPhee, and Foster and Friends. She has also become a force on the big and small screens on shows such as Scorpion, Smash, CSI: NY, Family Guy, Community, and more. She received much fan praise when she starred on Broadway in the hit musical Waitress.

IMPACT: REPRODUCTIVE  
MENTAL HEALTH

A woman’s mental health can be directly influenced by hormonal changes associated with reproductive life stages from menstruation to pregnancy and pregnancy loss, and the postpartum period to perimenopause. These physical changes and the new social and emotional realities of motherhood can increase the risk for conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenic disorders. Without treatment, such conditions can have lasting impacts on women, their newborns and their entire families.

Your investment will improve the quality of reproductive mental health care for women and families in BC, while establishing a nationally-recognized hub for reproductive mental health research. Support for this project will equip women to navigate their mental health challenges, will integrate research with clinical care, and will set the stage for future research breakthroughs.
