mental Health is Top of Mind

Everyone has their own life stressors. At Genentech, your mental health and well-being are a priority with a range of services and support resources.
How someone appears on the outside may not be reflective of the personal challenges they are facing. When we acknowledge our mental health, we get to know ourselves better, and are more authentic people, employees and leaders.
