Mental Illness and Disability

Published Aug 11

In this issue, we have articles on how the stigma of mental illness manifests unfairly at work, Autistics in Silicon Valley, and ADHD and recreational use of Adderall in tech. We explore mental illness and social media, discuss mental health in abusive workplaces, and examine initiatives within the industry to build awareness and empathy around mental illness. New authors tell their stories, covering suicide and shame, depression and the risks of being out, and the harmful pressures of tech culture at every level.

This issue is made possible in part by some of our generous readers: Ian Connolly, Lin Clark, Natalia Burina, Aaron Sarazan, Graydon Hoare, Christian Müller, Felipe Laso Marsetti and Alice Boxhall.
