Margaret Trudeau Visits Lambton College

 The Workplace Wellness Committee in partnership with the Sarnia Lambton Workforce Development Board welcomed Margaret Trudeau for a Keynote Presentation on March 27th at the Lambton Inn.
Margaret is well known as Canada’s youngest first lady when she married Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau in 1971 at age twenty-two. While appearing to lead a charmed and glamorous life, Margaret was struggling with bi-polar disorder.
She is now dedicated to helping others overcome the stigma of mental illness, and in her new highly anticipated book, Changing My Mind, she shares her insight about the mental illness that that affected her life so profoundly.
Margaret attended breakfast in the ballroom and spoke about mental health issues and how they impact the workplace, then stopped by our photo studio for a photo-op shot by Richard Beland.
