Supportiv, the pioneer in Conversational Care™ and Precision Peer Support™, releases a new collection of divorce articles, helping individuals to support themselves and their families, keep composed, and look ahead despite divorce’s difficulty.
Divorce impacts many facets of mental health and can disrupt wellbeing. Whether you are in the process of divorcing or considering it, and are on the initiating or receiving end, divorce shifts the goalposts in your life, confuses your priorities and coping mechanisms, and creates new demands. Supportiv’s newly published Divorce article collection speaks to the various ways mental health and divorce interact, and provides strategy to “keep it together” when a marriage falls apart.
The divorce process instigates major emotional adjustments–even for those who welcome the divorce itself. Through all of this, children and extended family may have their own feelings to voice, and divorcing individuals find themselves managing many others’ emotions in addition to their own.
Supportiv CEO and Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk speaks to the need for targeted resources in any stage of the divorce process: “The up-ending of one’s marriage requires recalibration and planning for a new future. These new resources aim to capture various contexts in which divorce creates emotional challenges, and provide the tools that can calm feelings of overwhelm.”
Elaborating on why individuals shouldn’t have to go through divorce without support, Supportiv Co-Founder Pouria Mojabi continues: “For those going through divorce, the path forward can feel dreadfully unclear. You might yearn for things to go back to ‘normal,’ but your status quo is gone. Coping through divorce involves defining and adjusting to a new normal–no small task.”
Supportiv’s new divorce resources provide reassurance, inspiration, and options for those considering or actively in the process of divorce. Topics in the collection include:
