WPWeekly Episode 358 – Interview with Dan Maby, Founder of WP&UP

In this episode, Malcolm Peralty and I are joined by Dan Maby, Founder of WP&UP. WP&UP is a non-profit charity based in England that supports and promotes positive mental health in the WordPress Community.

Dan explains why he started the charity, what he’s learned and how he manages his own mental health, and how the donation funds are spent. He also shared some startling statistics from a recent mental health survey they conducted. The results of this survey are being put into a white paper that will be published later this year.

We finished up the show covering the news of the week. If you’re interested in supporting WP&UP, please consider donating.

  1. An amazing group of people doing incredible work within our ecosystem, it was an absolute pleasure to meet the whole team in Berlin and I’d love to see them receive even more support… perhaps from the WP Foundation? Anyway, overall just :applause: to Dan and everyone involved.
