Resilience is the ability to recover from difficulties or change. Being resilient is an important aspect of mental well-being.
Everyone needs skills and supportive people in their lives to help cushion them from problems they may encounter. Introducing even a few positive elements into the lives of children and youth builds resilience and helps them flourish. Raising Resilient Children and Youth suggests many ways to do this.
