This is not a "talk" but rather an opportunity to meet up with fellow hackers/makers and connect about getting support for mental health challenges in our community. Hacker culture lends itself to some particular challenges as well as various flavors of awesome resources. Follow on topics could include how to stay alive when your brain wants you to die, how to survive someone else's crisis without making one of your own, whether and how to "come out" at work about your symptoms, and more.
