awesome PRs Welcome


A curated list of awesome articles, websites and resources about mental health in the software industry.

Mental health is a level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness. It's the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment.

It includes subjective well-being, perceived self-efficacy, autonomy, competence, inter-generational dependence, and self-actualization of one's intellectual and emotional potential, among others.

This list compiles several self-help resources we've personally found useful for a range of mental health problems, but in no way are they a replacement of professional help, psychotherapy or pharmacotherapy. We're not experts, and even if we were, most of these tools are meant as an aid to therapy, not as a substitute.

If you're in a crisis, please see here, or here for resources in your country.
