Unfinished Business episode 89: ‘Burger in a donut’ with Laura Kalbag

  • Words: Andy Clarke

This week’s an emotional episode of Unfinished Business. After talking about why a burger in a donut should never, ever have become a thing, Laura Kalbag and I discuss mental health issues in our industry. We talk about my own struggles with depression and depersonalisation disorder, issues that stem from my father’s own mental health issues and suicide.

Geek Mental Help Week, October 27th

Many of us struggle with mental health issues and many more than that are affected by it. Over the last few months, I’ve watched some of my dearest friends and others suffer from the the effects of mental health problems, either directly or indirectly.

Our industry’s incredibly supportive of one another, but there’s more that we can do to help. That’s where the idea for Geek Mental Help Week came from, starting October 27th. A week of articles, blog posts, conversations and events across the about mental health and how we can help people affected by it.

I need some help

Listen to the show for more information—I’ll write more in a blog post later today—and for how you can help. Right now I’m looking for one or two volunteers to design and code a simple, single page site and host it on GitHub pages. If that could be you, please get in touch. You can email me via my Unfinished Business email address.
