Before starting your week, take a moment to check in with your mental state. On Product Hunt, we've seen a recent uptick in mental health products, as entrepreneurship lends itself to high mental and emotional strain.
This plays into a larger trend in tech: a boom in VC funding for mental health startups. Last year, several hundred million dollars were invested in mental health tech, with startups like Calm ($116M raised), Headspace ($75.2M raised), Talkspace ($56.7M raised) and Shine ($8.3M raised) at the helm.
