Margaret Trudeau is a Canadian icon, celebrated both for her role in the public eye and as a respected mental-health and environmental issues advocate. From becoming a prime minister’s wife at a young age, to living with bi-polar disorder, she tirelessly shares her personal stories to remind others of the importance of nurturing the body, mind, and spirit. She is the author of four books, including her bestselling title, Changing My Mind, which charts her life’s ups and downs, and her latest title, The Time of Your Life, which offers women an inspirational and practical approach to creating a healthy, happy, secure and satisfying future. Trudeau sits on the Executive Advisory Board of the UBC Mental Health Institute as a community advocate, and she is the Honorary President of WaterAid, a charitable Canadian non-governmental agency that is dedicated to helping poor communities in developing countries build sustainable water-supply and sanitation services.
