Ann Arbor


he former first lady of Canada,
an international mental
health advocate, will be key-
note speaker during a luncheon to
benefit the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar
Research Fund at the University of
Michigan Depression Center at noon
on Thursday, Oct. 14, at The Henry
(formerly the Ritz-Carlton Hotel) in
Margaret Trudeau will share her
story on bipolar disorder and her mes-
sage of hope in finding a balance of
mind, body and spirit. She is the widow
of former Canadian Prime Minister
Pierre Trudeau. Diagnosed just a few
years ago, she has suffered from bipolar
illness all of her adult life.
The Michael Guz Memorial Fund,
set up by Dr. and Mis. Brian Guz of
Franklin, helps the Prechter fund
at U-M. An estimated 5.7 million
Americans suffer from bipolar disor-
der. "Our family seemed normal and
happy',' said Liz Guz.
"Three beautiful children growing up
in a close knit family. Things were good
for a long time, but when our second
child, Michael, developed bipolar ill-
ness our reality was altered; said Guz,
an active member of Temple Beth El in
Bloomfield Township.
"Michael's behavior began to change,
especially as he entered adolescence.
He became anxious and depressed. His
struggle became too hard to overcome.
There are two things that cannot be

controlled — the severity of the illness
and the response to medication.
"Michael's bipolar disorder was
worsening and he did not respond to
the many medications we tried over the
years. It was very frustrating and heart-
breaking for him and us:'
When Michael died last year, the
family's private pain became public;
they were overwhelmed by the love and
support from the community. They
wanted to find a way to help prevent
this problem from happening to oth-
ers by finding a fund that did genetic
research in bipolar disorder. That is
how they came to the U-M Depression
Center, specifically the Heinz C.
Prechter Bipolar Research Fund.
The Margaret Trudeau luncheon is
presented by the Prechter Fund. All
proceeds raised by the luncheon will
benefit the fund's gene repository, the
only independently funded repository
in the nation. The repository collects
DNA samples from individuals with
and without bipolar disorder.
The DNA is evaluated to find clues
to early diagnosis and a roadmap to
understanding causes and identify
treatments. ❑
