Rating: 5 of 5

Living and working with mental illness is difficult. The stresses of our lives only make the struggle harder. Sometimes it becomes too much and something needs to give. I will share my personal story and how I've learned to take care of myself while making a safer and healthier work for my colleagues, family, and friends.

Not since the first time I heard Ed Finkler has a mental health talk been such an emotional, impactful experience. Samantha is already a fantastic speaker, but this talk is incredible.

Great talk about overcoming issues and lot of problems about mental health we have in our tech community (altought some of the issues are US specific, things like healthcare)

Thank you for opening up yourself, I'm not that brave and not sure if I will ever find that strength

Honestly, I wondered about the topic in a tech conference.
I was so totally wrong.
What a powerful story and one that I think everyone took something away with - I did.
You could hear a pin drop - everyone was so involved in the talk.
Many thanks for sharing your experience and the importance of this topic.
I shared the story with my team first thing Monday morning.
Cheers, Mullins

I agree with David's review: "You could hear a pin drop". Samantha really got the attention from her audience. The talk definitely made me think about mental illness, and how we can be 'an ally' to others. However, I find it very disrespectful to say f***-ing at least 20 times in a talk. Doing so is a choice, a way of presenting. One of Samantha's slides was about RESPECT. Hearing this talk created friction in me, hence the 3/5 score.
