About this session

Mental health awareness has gained quite some traction recently, yet the design & tech space remains a hotbed of burnout, anxiety and depression.

Based on his own lived experience with depression and learnings as a Mental Health First Aider, Clive will share a few exercises and resources to equip you and your team to start a meaningful conversation and take the first steps towards better mental wellbeing.

While this breakout session is not sound medical advice or a substitute for professional therapy, it will provide some practical inspiration to anyone interested in the topic.
