Did you forget to take your meds?

There’s tremendous stigma attached to having mental health problems. But in the tech / web industry over the last few years, I’ve noticed a growing openness to talking about this, and taking advantage of technology to do so. As someone who struggles with major depression and an anxiety disorder, I find this raised awareness encouraging – but I think we need to take the conversation further. Because what I’ve found is that, sometimes, the ways in which mental illness is made visible make important aspects of it invisible. Reflecting on what I’ve encountered online and IRL, I’ll discuss some ideas on how we could do better.
