Over the past 2 years, we have learned and witnessed the importance of mental health and emotional well-being. The generation that is now retired - the “great generation” or the boomers - are often not used to or comfortable talking about mental health. But as we are living longer than ever before, more attention is focused on wellness, resilience and emotional health.
Dr. Michelle R. Zechner, Assistant Professor at the Rutgers School of Health Professions, Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Counseling Professions joins us in this enlightening episode on wellness and flourishing with age.
For some people that may come naturally, but others need to be intentional about it. In this episode, Dr Zechner discusses tools people can use to flourish as they age, and what can we do to support our own multi-dimensional wellness.
Dr. Zechner has an extensive career in psychiatric rehabilitation, research, professional training and more. Her primary expertise is in helping people living with lifelong mental health conditions focus on health and wellness, and in wellness for emotional health as we age.
