Stronger Than Fear: Mental Health in the Developer Community

by Ed Finkler

Session (50 Minutes)

This will essentially be an expansion of my [Open Sourcing Mental Illness]( talk, with content specifically focused on the state of mental health awareness and openness in the developer community. It will include detailed examination of data and anecdotes from the Mental Health in Tech survey I conducted in September 2014. The focus is on the impact of mental disorders on productivity, how we are failing to support those with mental health issues, and what we can do to change the status quo.
