According to Mental Health America, over 44 million American adults have a mental health condition. Technology has changed the way we identify, treat, and find community around mental health, while simultaneously creating a fast-paced and demanding industry that takes a toll on the mental health of developers.
This panel will address mental health in the tech community from three distinct perspectives:
- How technology is addressing mental health on a large scale?
- How to pursue a career in tech while taking space for mental health?
- How Flatiron School teaches our students to put their mental health first?
Followed by a Q&A Session with all the panelists.
You can look forward to insights, bites, and cocktails!
