<aside> 💡 last updated: 13 February 2024
I'm Lorenzo, you probably know me as kelset (twitter, github, website) and I've been seeing a therapist for over 6 years now. I'm also a Senior Sofware Engineer at Microsoft and an Open Source maintainer for React Native.
Over my career in tech, I've found that we don't talk quite enough about mental health and the burden that this environment has on us. After a bad episode of burnout a few years ago, I decided that I needed help and found a therapist - and in 2020, with the start of the pandemic, I've started to collect resources and links that I feel are good to start learning more about this topic.
So, basically, what you are reading here is what I'd send you if we were to have a conversation about mental health. It's meant to be an alive document, so it's probably better for you to just bookmark it and come back from time to time 😉
In this area, I’m putting general links and resources, divided by area - you don’t need to be a developer or a OSS maintainer to use them 🤗 if you have any suggestions for items to add to these lists, please let me know!
There’s a lot of activity lately on the various social about mental health. Here you’ll find links to accounts and posts that I think are cool to have in your timeline.
To make it simple, I’ve put it all in this YouTube playlist to make it easy to consume.
Also, I have a YouTube channel now where I talk with other developers about mental health, so check it out!
I’m trying to capture here a series of resources that helped me learn more about these intersections (software engineering + oss) and how it affects mental health.
