Psychologists have long studied identity, but what are identity issues? Identity issues arise when people experience difficulties around their sense of self and who they are.  There are many reasons for why this might happen, and sometimes it can become an ‘identity crisis’.

As human beings, our identity is important because it provides a sense of self, and a source of  meaning and belonging.  If we feel connected to a kind of self, and are able to define ourselves, we are more able to navigate life, and find our place in the world, this means it has implications for social cohesion, and wellbeing.  Indeed, our identity is made up by the many groups we feel a part of (e.g., ethnic background, religion, political affiliations, etc), and thus identity intersects.  But sometimes people experience uncertainty about one or more of these aspects, and this can impact identity.  For example, career choice, long-term career plans, friends, one’s role in the family, parenting, gender or sexual identity, values, and group affiliations.  When uncertainty escalates and is joined by feelings of confusion, identity crisis may occur.  This places individuals’ sense of self at risk, and they may experience insecurity in their identity, making them feel unstable.  An identity crisis can happen at any time, and often occurs when people experience major change.
