Supportiv adds 10 new articles to its Amplify article collection, exploring the interplay between underrepresented, marginalized identities and a range of mental health struggles.
Building on the wealth of ideas discussed in past Amplify articles, these additions to the collection discuss emotional challenges which culture and identity can magnify. These perspectives have flown under the radar for too long, due to silence – or really, due to a lack of representation in public discourse.
Supportiv’s new article collection features the following titles and more, aiming to validate these struggles and their contexts, as well as to provide productive paths forward into wellbeing:
- Hustle Culture’s Emotional Grip On Black, Indigenous, And Other POC | Nasira Seddiq
- How Fetishization And Violence Impact Asian Diaspora Emotional Health | Rin Park
- How Postpartum Depression And Culture Can Clash | Yvonne Phan
- Ambiguous Sexual Consent: The Emotional Turmoil Of Using The R Word | Ingrid Ren
- Undocumented And Queer: Solutions To Undocuqueer Stress by Sydney Smith
- APIDA Achievement Anxiety: Rejecting The Rewards Of Perfectionism | Anuj Gandhi
- How Armed School Resource Officers Make Students Feel Criminalized | Larissa Cursaro
- Scorned For Seeking Help As A Filipino American | Joanna Corpuz
- Why Internalized Homophobia Is So Damaging To LGBTQ Youth | Charlotte Pearse
- Imposter Syndrome In Low Income College Students | Kaitlyn DeRouen
Supportiv CEO and Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk explains her drive to make these perspectives available:
“To overcome our struggles, we want to confide in those who understand our circumstances. It presents a huge challenge when others don’t understand our context or background. Each of these articles discusses either a marginalized struggle, or the marginalized context in which a mental health struggle can occur.”
Pouria Mojabi, Supportiv Co-Founder, highlights how each of us can benefit by channeling the AMPLIFY collection in real life:
“These articles seek to acknowledge complex and marginalized personal struggles that we might not hear about as often. As these writers bravely de-stigmatize their own struggles, they help others feel safer in sharing their stories.”
