Resilience is something that can change over time and you have the power to change it. Resilience can be taught and learned, and the things that build resilience can be introduced into your everyday life now.
There are three parts to resilience:
Mental wellbeing describes our mental state. This is how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. Your emotional wellbeing can change, from day to day, month to month or year to year.
Next is social connections. Connecting with other people isn’t always easy and many children and young people can sometimes feel isolated or struggle with relationships. Lots of children and young people feel like this and making friends can help you to overcome this.
Lastly are ways to cope. There are many ways to cope and get support, such as self-help (more on that below) or speaking to your family and/or friends or to specialists like doctors.
