Description

There are so many conversations around how to perform at work—and on the flip side, how to take care of your mental health. But what about caring for your mental health at work, a place we’ll spend nearly ⅓ of our lives? From the Shine app’s co-founders Marah Lidey and Naomi Hirabayashi comes “Friends With Mental Health Benefits,” a podcast highlighting the untold mental health stories of founders and senior leaders. Hear how folks navigate their own wellbeing in the workplace and support the mental health of their teams—especially those most marginalized.

Andy Dunn — Living & Leading With Bipolar 1 Disorder

As the co-founder of clothing brand Bonobos, Andy Dunn led the company to a $310 million acquisition by Walmart in 2017—a dream feat for any startup. But what was happening behind the scenes: His struggle navigating bipolar 1 disorder. In this episode, Andy talks with Marah and Naomi about the power—and fear—in disclosing his mental health journey, the daily habits that help him navigate his disorder, and the importance of feeling fully known by at least one person in the workplace.

Andy’s new book, Burn Rate: Launching a Startup and Losing My Mind, is available now.

Sarah Jones Simmer — Let Yourself Choose Joy and Gratitude
2500

What if you only had five years to live? How would you show up differently at work and in your personal life? These were questions that Sarah Jones Simmer, CEO of weight care startup Found and a former executive at Bumble, faced after a May 2020 diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer—and a potential worst-case prognosis from a doctor. Now one-year cancer-free, the experience fundamentally changed how she lives her life today. In this episode, Sarah talks with Shine’s co-founders Marah and Naomi about reprioritizing joy and gratitude in her life, her approach to building workplaces where people can show up authentically, and how vulnerability can help us all conquer mental health stigma.
