Mental health is a topic that is very personal to me and something that we need to put a little more emphasis on in the hard-driving world of startups. Coincidentally, Andy Johns was on Lenny's Podcast earlier this week talking about this very topic. I found it to be super meaningful and I highly recommend it. Here's a link to that episode: https://www.lennyspodcast.com/when-enough-is-enough-andy-johns-ex-fb-twitter-quora/
