It was slightly over a year ago that I wrote about Tackling Depression for IT Workers.
A year later, I saw this article –Silicon Valley Suicides: Austen Heinz, Depression And The Pressures of Running a Startup Business
So not much has changed in the tech industry in a year. We’re still working ourselves straight into poor mental health, with long hours, lots of stress, or the pressure to keep any issues that might impact the company’s public appearance under cover, even if it means not getting the help needed.
It makes me wonder if it’s really worth it. What good does it do to have a successful company, a big payout, and not live to enjoy it?
