What is up with Linux guys buying MacBook Pros? This is depressing-- how can you put a penguin sticker next to your Apple logo?

In the wake of tragic national and local losses in the open source community to depression, Yshai Boussi of Portland Family Counseling will discuss all aspects of depression including signs and symptoms, origins, solutions and treatments, how to help others if you're concerned that they may be depressed. Yshai has family in the tech community and insights into why we may have a different relationship with depression than most communities.

Yshai has been practicing as a psychotherapist since 2003. Over the years, he has worked with many different types of individuals, couples, adolescents and families. He has seen how depression affects individuals but also friends and family as well. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor operating a private practice with his wife called Portland Family Counseling. Our practice is in NW Portland. http://portlandfamilycounseling.com

Many will head to the Lucky Lab NW after the meeting
