Margaret Trudeau

Margaret Trudeau became the youngest Prime Minister's wife in Canadian history when she married Pierre Elliot Trudeau at the age of 22. She has led a rich and interesting life by raising five children and travelling the country and the world extensively.

Trudeau has authored two previous books, Beyond Reason and Consequences. In her latest book, Changing My Mind, Margaret discusses with candour and insight the bi-polar condition she has struggled with all her life. She shares her journey of recovery, acceptance and hope with the wish that others suffering will reach out and get the help they need.

Trudeau now sits on the Executive Advisory Board of the UBC Mental Health Institute as a community advocate. She will further her knowledge of mental health issues and gain new insights into the diagnosis and treatment of some of the most challenging issues in modern medicine.

In May 2009, Trudeau was awarded the Society of Biological Psychiatry Humanitarian Award, for her efforts to help people suffering from mental illnesses.
