Mental Health in Tech
Cat Carbonell Jun 8
In light of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain's suicides, I want to ask all of you:
How do you cope in hopeless situations?
How do you approach your employer and/or team when you're feeling the low tide slowly engulfing your existence?
How can tech help with mental health?
I find myself drowning in self-doubt, beating myself down when I don't understand a coding concept; I see the solution and it seems so simple, thus I berate myself for not understanding it or coming up with the solution at all.
Stepping away, if I can, helps. But what do you do when you're too deep into the spiral of hopelessness?
