People in technical professions tend to have a high rate of diagnosable mental illnesses such as depression. How would you deal with it? How can we deal with it in the workplace? _Should_ we deal with it? What does it even mean to "deal with it"?

This is not a technical talk but a talk aimed towards the goal of helping to foster a happier future for us techies and the people around us.
