The overall situation of the pandemic, though we are slowly going back to normal, is still uncertain. When will it end? Will the situation improve? These are the same questions that entrepreneurs often ask regarding their mental health and mindset. How do entrepreneurs acknowledge their mental health challenges and ask for the help they need?
On November 23, the Halifax Chamber of Commerce with the Medavie Blue Cross present an Unfiltered Discussion about Mental Health and Entrepreneurial Mindset.
The presenter is Michael DeVenney, a Halifax-based entrepreneur and mental health advocate; and the founder of WorkInsights. He is dedicated to open minds and create change. He is also involved in the world’s largest study of entrepreneurs, mental health, and decision making – the Mindset Project. As a mental health advocate, Michael regularly speaks to diverse audiences about his personal and professional mental health journey with a focus on recovery, hope and the importance of prioritizing one’s mental wellbeing in the workplace.
This interactive session will be co-hosted by Karn Nichols, Executive Director of the Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division and include a Q & A. She has a 25 year leadership experience in both for profit and social impact sectors. She also served as Board Chair for the MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning; Manager, Career of Services and Graduate Programs for the Sobey School of Business at Saint Mary’s University, and VP People Development and Branch Operations for Maritime Travel.
