Mental Health Matters
The Importance of Support
“Having waited my entire life to get an award for something, I now get awards all the time for being mentally ill… I’m apparently very good at it.”
Kathy lives with her husband in Langley, BC. She has a mantra to enjoy life to its fullest and does not let anything stop her, taking the ups and downs and using them as learning experiences while always remembering, “You have been through this before, and you will get through it this time.”
One of the things Kathy loves most is animals. Currently she has three furry friends – two cats and one dog. She has trained dogs for a variety of sports, and it brings her great joy to see her rescue dog blossom despite her previous life. She volunteers for the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) and will do anything to help an animal.
Kathy is an avid gardener, spending hours in her yard, and she loves the feeling of serenity she finds in sitting on her deck and enjoying her efforts. She goes home to Saskatchewan each summer – she avoids winter trips for obvious reasons – in order to visit her brother and her ninety-four-year-old mother, who always tells Kathy she is proud of her. She is Kathy’s best friend and is always there to listen and be supportive.
