We have come a long way in terms of awareness of mental health issues, something that wasn’t afforded to Baby Boomers when they were growing up.
An intergenerational study by Bupa U.K. showed that Baby Boomers were the most likely age group to delay or avoid seeking medical help for symptoms associated with mental health, even though many of them deal with it.
In fact, many of them ignore these symptoms altogether simply because they don’t consider mental health as a serious issue. It not only makes younger generations feel like their problems don’t matter, but it also leaves many older people dealing with these issues on their own.
Seek help, Boomer.
