To close out mental health awareness month, I’m focusing today’s show on our midlife mental health, and it’s a must-listen! There is no shame in the getting help game and the most radical act we can do as women is heal ourselves and get the support we need. Episode 114 of The Jen Marples Show features Dr. Leslie Carr, a clinical psychologist, and we discuss Navigating Mental Health in Midlife.
Dr. Leslie Carr is a clinical psychologist and an expert in how trauma, stress, culture, and digital technology impact the mind. These areas of expertise come together as she speaks and consults about how people can thrive during our complex times.
Leslie and I discuss:
Technology as a driver of distraction and overwhelm.
The power of deep reflective thought and concentration.
Common mental health challenges for midlife women.
Tips to manage mental clutter and our to-do lists.
How to know if you need professional help.
Therapy options if you’re on a budget.
The power of couple’s therapy to work through issues.
How to advocate for your own mental health and where to find support.
