Resilience First Aid

Resilience, the ability to cope with adversity through developing coping strategies and bounce back from failures, is now recognised as a defining characteristic of employee well-being, success and long-term mental health.

9 out of 10 people can benefit from increasing resilience skills that protect against mental illnesses like depression and anxiety. Throughout the pandemic, this need has only increased. This is why we need to take a preventative approach to mental health. Rather than waiting until people need professional treatment, we can start supporting each other to connect and build mental wellness proactively.
