Mental health is too costly to ignore.

Mental health is too costly to ignore.

I recently recovered from burnout. Reflecting on that time, I realise I’ve been stupid. A few of you might have had similar experiences.

I was supervising two teams. I was also responsible for the design of software, including challenging stakeholder management. Then I took on an additional role, as Diversity & Inclusion Officer.

On top of that, and with top priority, I was working hard on what I care most about: helping our political, and corporate environment become more design and human-centred.

Everyone/Me

Everyone/Me

I had all these responsibilities in parallel. Not even because of ambition. I’m not driven by status or promotions.

I believe in Human Centred Design and was trying to put this on the map. This is really important to me. I did all the other things because I thought that it was the right thing to do for the organization.

I was wrong. Obviously.

It was just a matter of time before I’d burn out. I’m a sensitive person. That didn’t help. I suppose that the social effect of Covid didn’t help either.

I eventually burned out.

And then I recovered :)

After some time off, I'm back to work. I caused some debate by posting a personal message about my mental health on our Slack channel.

Those who follow me on IG/LinkedIn might have noticed that I have recently become more active. In 2021, I became depressed & started to have occasional suicidal episodes. I’ve tried to deny my feelings and given people the impression that I was ok, but that’s unsustainable.

After a long period of hesitation, I reached out to a psychiatrist. He prescribed antidepressants. I’m currently on the lowest dose possible, have 0 side effects, & don't rely on social media.
