What is resilience?

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from failure, challenges, stress and trauma. It can also help children to cope when things go wrong or if they experience change or loss. Resilience is a skill that children develop as they grow - adults have an important role in helping children to build resilience.  


A huge thank you to Mentally Healthy Schools who have collated so many of these resources.
