When it comes to mental health, what are we searching for?

You know that exhaustion you’re feeling — the one that no amount of espresso shots or power naps can remedy? Well, it turns out you’re not alone. Last month in the U.S. we saw spikes in fatigue-related Google searches, and the question “why do I feel bad?” reached a record high. There’s a collective feeling of exhaustion, and we’re all looking for ways to cope with it. Over the past year, we’ve seen an increase in searches related to meditation, virtual therapy, walking and digital detoxes. Sinc...

LA County to create team to track, prevent veteran suicides

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday, May 4,to establish a review team to track veteran suicides in an attempt to provide more effective intervention. Supervisors Kathryn Barger and Sheila Kuehl co-authored the motion, saying that despite already shocking numbers, they believe suicides among veterans are undercounted. “Most of us are aware that the statistic nationwide is an estimated 20 veterans a day die by suicide,” Barger said. “But this data is only reflective of nat...

Do You Trust Your Impulses? A Little Education Goes a Long Way

During May, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, advocates like myself educate the public on various topics. One topic we don’t learn enough about is how emotional impulses affect our mind, body, and lives. Impulses, the strong biological pulls to take action, come from emotions. In fact, the whole purpose of emotions is to compel us to move. The word emotion comes from the Latin word “emovere ” meaning to “move out, remove, agitate.” From sprinting out of a burning building...

If Asian Americans struggle with Mental Health in May 2018

The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. And these two things intersect, or shall we say, collide, for those who are Asian Americans and struggle with mental illness. Let’s do the math. The Asian American population is estimated at 21.4 million (as of 2016, cf. Census Bureau’s Facts for Features: Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: May 2018) About 1 in 5 Americans struggle with mental health each year. That comes to...

From Coping to Empowered: Mental Health and the Community

Last week was the Techstars Boulder Startup Week Brain Crawl, where I was given the role of introducing the Brain Health Conversation with Jerry Colonna and Brad Feld . This was also a huge moment for me as I unveiled Sigmend’s OPEN Labs to an audience full of the people who have helped me the most on my own journey. Under different circumstances, it could have been a very nerve racking task, but after having part one of this series viewed by a few hundred thousand people t...

These articles also explore aspects of mental health that may be under-appreciated in the traditional social psychological literature as they address sociological theories, the roles that institutions, culture, and social stru...

The Skills You Need to Succeed Start in Your Head

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it reminded me of an email I got from a VC mailing list. Leaders don’t often feel like they can — or should – share their stress and worries, especially with their team. Which is why I was surprised to see this statement in an email sent to f ounders and CEOs of a leading Silicon Valley VC firm: “Ever since I started the company, I’ve lost the ability to sleep through the night. I wake up with worries and concerns and anxieties, and toss and turn a...

Let’s End the Stigma Around Mental Health

At Techstars, we talk about the mantra ‘founder first’, but being advocates of founders means we can’t only focus on the health of their companies – we must also focus on the health of the founder. May is Mental Health Awareness month and Techstars is driving to end the stigma that surrounds mental health. Let’s open up the conversation around it and what it means to our community and industry. When my first son was a teenager, he was challenged with depression and bipolar disorder. Durin...
