A BROKEN MIND; OUR JOURNEY WITH SEVERE MENTAL ILLNESS
Guelda Redman lives in Chilliwack, British Columbia, on 2 ½ acres with her husband, daughter, and daughter’s family. She is an animal lover and keeps alpacas, sheep, goats, and poultry, as well as her dog and cats.
Currently caring for her two sweet grandkids during the weekdays and her 95-year-old mother full-time, life never slows down. But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
While navigating a Schizophrenia diagnosis for her son, she also developed severe depression herself. Learning more about mental illness and how it can affect you has been a roller coaster experience, to say the least.
After discovering the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society (BCSS), Guelda and her family have been fundraising for them yearly in either the BMO Vancouver Marathon or Scotiabank half-marathon runs as Team Heimburger.
Currently, Guelda sits on the Board of Directors for the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society Foundation.
Praying for the best but preparing for the worst, Guelda keeps a watchful eye on her son and realizes just how fragile the human mind can be. Things are good now, but there are never any guarantees. More research is desperately needed.
