Jane Meagher Never let shame destroy you for what you did to survive. For some people just living is an act of courage.

Valerie Thompson, President, Manitobans for Human Rights.
I celebrate the day I phoned Jane Meagher and asked her to consider joining the Board of Directors with Manitobans for Human Rights. I learned very quickly that Jane is highly intelligent, expresses herself with great clarity, and has obviously learned a lot from her life experiences. More than all of this it is the extent of Jane’s passion and commitment that enables her to really stand out. Jane is a born leader who thrives towards positive change in this world. 
Jane Meagher (pronounced M’har) is a Human Rights Warrior. Jane has had a challenging life juggling career and motherhood whilst battling mental illness and addictions. Jane is a fighter and has been an inspiration to many people dealing with trauma, addiction, and homelessness.
Today, Jane is the Director for Mental Health and Addiction with Manitobans for Human Rights (MHRI), the Founder of 100 Women Who Care Winnipeg, a philanthropic organization that raises money for Winnipeg charities.
Jane thrives on challenging projects resulting in success, such as transitioning the notorious Occidental Hotel in Winnipeg into Red Road Lodge – Home for Recovery, in 2004.  
Jane is a creative thinker and entrepreneur with over twenty-five years experience designing and implementing successful training programs with specific outcomes. Jane has always bought her projects in on budget. She is a compassionate and dynamic facilitator, and a supportive and solution driven project manager, as her testimonials will reflect.
What is Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Complex-PTSD or complex-trauma is relatively new in the field of psychology and explains the behaviors and complexity of individuals who suffer long-term stress from trauma. This usually occurs in childhood but can also be applied to people who have been captive for long periods of time. Complex-PTSD changes how people cope with everyday life. It prevents people from trusting anyone. It usually leads to some form of addiction which can lead to homelessness, incarceration, and suicide.
Jane has complex-PTSD and is a recovering alcoholic addict with fourteen years of sobriety. She speaks from personal experience about this common, complicated and often misdiagnosed mental disability.
This seminar is for groups or a Keynote Speech.
