Recognising Burnout

Mental health is becoming an increasingly important topic. For this talk Andrew will focus on one particular aspect of mental health, burnout. Including his own personal experiences of when it can get really bad and steps that could be taken to help catch it early.

Working in technology can be extremely demanding and stressful. People put a lot of passion and themselves into what they do, removing the separation of their work from themselves. This can lead to burnout in many cases which is similar to depression in many ways.

In this talk Andrew will talk through his personal experience of his worst case of burnout including the mental and physical toll it took, as well as giving advice on how to spot it early and ways to help mitigate against it.
