Entrepreneurs and Mental Health: Breaking Down the Stigma

Attend the next Startup Grind Irvine panel to further open dialogue about mental health in the Startups and Entrepreneurs community.  Entrepreneurs and Mental Health Breaking Down the Stigma Irvine

During Mental Health Awareness Week, the panel will be discussing how to breakdown the stigma of mental health in the startups and entrepreneurs community.

Did you know?

In an article written in TechCrunch in December of last year and according to a study by Michael Freeman, entrepreneurs are 50% more likely to report having a mental health condition, with some specific conditions being incredibly prevalent amongst founders.

Startup Company Founders are:

2X more likely to suffer from depression

6X more likely to suffer from ADHD

3X more likely to suffer from substance abuse

10X more likely to suffer from bi-polar disorder

2X more likely to have psychiatric hospitalization

2X more likely to have suicidal thoughts

Starting companies and scaling them is inherently tremendous hard, mentally, physically and emotionally. The grind can be a toxic one, with dozens of factors all contributing to make it even more treacherous. 

If the community would recognize and embrace the weaknesses and support one another in their imperfections, they will start seeing a healthier more sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem.
