You may have heard the term “mid-life crisis,” often used to describe significant changes made in middle life, around 40 to 50. You might imagine an older couple getting a new car to look young or an impulsive divorce. While these ideas can be true, a mid-life crisis often involves making drastic changes to your life based on the belief that you are “running out of time” to make grand decisions in your life.  

Below are several articles about the mid-life crisis phenomenon. In these articles, you can learn more about the unique challenges that might occur in one’s middle age and how to cope with these years. You can also learn what might be joyful or fun about middle age and how to find support if you are struggling with a mental health challenge.
