3615 bipolar and developer: my little survival guide

Conference in French

Mental health has long been a taboo, misunderstood and stigmatized subject. Today, it has become a hot topic due to the impact of the HIV-19 pandemic on the population.
Increasingly present in the media, whether on social networks or in the news, mental health is "not dirty anymore".

Yet mental health remains poorly understood and stigmatized in the professional world. In a capitalist, individualistic and performance-based world, people with mental health problems are seen as less efficient, less adapted in the workplace.

In this lecture, we will discuss the importance of mental health in today's world and the need to break the cliché around this societal issue.
We will share my personal experience as a bipolar person and developer, how my burnout and depression led to the right diagnosis.
In short, I will share with you my little guide to surviving the disease.

If you are interested in these topics and would like to learn more about the impact of mental health in personal and professional life, don't miss this exciting conference!
