I faced a challenge one out of every three people in America has: depression and anxiety
Lenny Mendonca the former Chief Economic and Business Advisor to Gov. Gavin Newsom wrote about his story.
My hope is sharing my story here encourages others to do the same. I did resign to focus on family and personal business – and my mental health. Like past biking injuries, I intend to make this recovery process a learning moment, not a lifetime stigma. It will be a lifelong journey. My determination to work for a better future for all of us remains unchanged. I’m privileged to be on the path to recovery. But neither privilege nor luck should have to be part of anyone’s mental health equation.
