Peer Connections: Aging with an SCI – Mental Health

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

The natural process of aging represents the gradual loss of some abilities that were easy when we were young. As a person living with a spinal cord injury, you have already adjusted to new and sometimes unwelcome circumstances in your life.
Aging adds another dimension of change. Emotional and cognitive concerns arise in the overlap between aging and mental health.
Myths and stigma persist about mental health; but by learning more about them, you can help pave the way to greater acceptance. We will introduce you to two skills, thought identification and thought challenging. You can use these to start to develop a greater resiliency and help promote your emotional well-being.
By practicing these skills, you can gain confidence in your ability to overcome some of the challenges you may face as you age with a spinal cord injury.

Dr. Swati Mehta, Wallace (Randy) Upper, Virgil Nacuta and Oda Al-anizi will lead this conversation.
