Any tips on how to leave this industry while I still can?

YES! I have a worksheet / questionnaire I can share with you that I use with clients exploring their exit strategy and putting the right mental thought, energy and actions to making it happen with ease. PM me and I'm happy to share with you! (p.s. I'm an ex-brand strategist turned certified wellness and "exit the industry and do what you love" coach! :)

Berlin Cameron is doing an event tomorrow morning with workshops about burnout, stress management, imposter syndrome.

I love that! So happy to hear it.

Our agency is supporting some kind of initiative that involves social sharing. IDK. I feel like the agency has done some related issues to try. But as someone who lives with anxiety and depression and seriously considered a medical leave due to a gaslighting boss and toxic team culture it often feels like too little too late. There is so much about this working environment that is fundamentally unhealthy for someone with a mental illness that I feel like this industry would need to take a more serious look in the mirror if it wanted to actually have a meaningful affect. And I say this as someone who has been working at my mental health for 10+ years, has my symptoms managed under normal conditions and has a great support system. I feel tremendously privileged and still struggle.

Thank you so much for sharing. This really hits home for me. I agree that much more needs to be done, but I am grateful for any agency that at LEAST recognizes the toxicity of our environment sometimes. If you ever need to discuss your situation, I am all ears!
