However, no one has ever studied how all three factors are interrelated, especially in a technology hub like Silicon Valley, where optimism and positive attitudes are especially strong. Given the views held toward negative emotions, perhaps looking into the relationship of Silicon Valley's culture, mental health, and emotional health will provide insight on how to move forward with the health of the youth in years to come.
