PDC 2018 - Day 2 Session 6 Track 4: Donna Bowyer - Intro to Mental Health First Aide

Topic: Introduction to Mental Health First Aide

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is one of the training options that can prepare you as a Project Manager for what you may see in your staff.  Work life balance is a dream we work towards, but most of us are pulled with work issues or issues in our personal life at some time.  We can’t park our life issues at the door step at work and our work issues at the door when we leave.  Mental Health First Aid helps us in our life and helps as Project Managers.  MHFA teaches you about: substances, mood disorders, anxiety, and psychosis.  Not as a professional but as the person that first recognizes that you may know someone that is struggling.  We will also look at issues relating to the new cannabis legislation and how that may impact the workplace.

Website/Video:  https://www.intentionalyou.ca/

Jennifer Ehrmantraut is edgy, funny, and a little sweary. 

With over 20 years experience working in leadership positions (6 of which were at VP level), Jennifer Ehrmantraut knows what it takes to motivate your team, help you create and successfully carry out strategic plans, exceed budget expectations and balance the day-to-day operations while maintaining focus on the company vision.

As a Certified Professional Accountant, Jennifer's focus was on the management of organizations, leading both large (>1000 staff) and small teams and being accountable and responsible for budgets in excess of $300M.

She is a professional accountant by trade and an inspirer of intentional joy by passion. Her biggest lesson has been that when we lose the connection to ourselves then we can no longer connect with others. In finding her connection to herself again, Jennifer is redefining what success looks like through her company, Intentional You. There, she challenges individuals to question their stories, their capabilities, and their judgments of themselves, to give them the platform to jump beyond what they thought was possible.

Jennifer has been featured in Vintage Gypsy Magazine, on the TEDx stage, and has received numerous leadership awards over the years.Her Professional Qualifications include:

  • Certified Executive Coach (CEC) through Royal Roads University (April 2015)
  • Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) (June 2001)
