Bringing Existential Depression to Light With Melissa & Doug Founder

Melissa and Doug Bernstein don’t know it yet, but in my late teens, I actually knew them well. I stumbled upon their successful toy company, Melissa & Doug, in an unconventional way.

Ironically, I spent some of my darkest moments in close proximity to the seemingly joyful toy-making visionaries, parked beside their company headquarters to cry in solitude at night.

I often stared at the company’s sign, wondering if Melissa and Doug were real people and what they were like. By sheer coincidence or no coincidence at all, I now work with them on Melissa’s latest venture, an online ecosystem for those who struggle with mental health and seek community.
