Retirement: The Income Generation

On The Income Generation, host David Scranton interviews Dr. Silva on some of the mental health challenges of retirees.  One common struggle Dr. Silva speaks about is identity crises of retirees who no longer have the career that had long defined their identities. 

Additionally, loss of workplace socialization, decreased motivation, financial stress, and physical burdens are discussed.  Dr. Silva offers practical advice on how to cope with and manage some of these challenges, including expanding one’s social network, structuring daily activities, engaging in enjoyable activities, and if there are signs of depression and/or anxiety seeking consultation from a mental health professional.
