New Aging Article Collection From Supportiv Meets Senior Emotional Struggles With Empathy And Practical Paths Toward Later-Life

New Aging Article Collection From Supportiv Meets Senior Emotional Struggles With Empathy And Practical Paths Toward Later-Life Wellbeing

Supportiv, the anonymous peer-to-peer mental health service, has released a new resource collection speaking directly to the over-60 population with peer perspectives and nuanced emotional wellbeing tips-to navigate later life's changing priorities, social roles, and emotional needs.

PR Newswire

BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As we mature, first during puberty then mid-life and now later life, aging-related emotional struggles arise in the absence of resources to handle transition and uncertainty.

Addressing these later life emotional issues proactively is key to unlocking the possibilities that may arise. It's not necessarily that you need more emotional support as you age, but changing perspectives on self-efficacy, relationships, and sense of purpose alter the kinds of support and contexts in which you need emotional boosts.

Later life can be considered a liminal period, a concept often also applied to teenagers going off to college, or to veterans returning from combat. A liminal period is a time when new possibilities reveal themselves to you, and you're presented with opportunities to change the status quo. As you realize you're maturing, you have a chance to reassess and set yourself up for emotional wellness.

Helena Plater-Zyberk, Supportiv CEO & Co-Founder discusses a proactive approach to growing older: "Research shows that people often unlock a greater sense of purpose and wellbeing later in life. But we don't just stumble into self-fulfillment. Just like navigating any period of growth, success in later life takes resources and a concerted effort. That's why Supportiv has created this collection of later life self-empowerment resources."

Supportiv, the anonymous peer-to-peer mental health service, has released a new resource collection speaking directly to the over-60 population with nuanced perspectives and emotional wellbeing tips–to navigate later life's changing priorities, social roles, and emotional needs.
