Building Resilience

Life can become challenging and having the skill to work through potentially stressful situations is important.  Try to divide up stressful situations into smaller chunks so they become more manageable. You could also try to mentally step outside an issue and consider what advice you might give to another person with the same problem. Nurturing these coping skills will help you to develop a sense of bravery, an ability to solve problems, to stand up for your own views and beliefs, foster interests and making you feel better about yourself.


What can help?

You should consider:

  • Talking to someone you trust
  • Spend time with the people that make you feel good about yourself
  • Managing stress levels by talking to someone who may be able to offer support
  • Set tasks and goals that make you feel good about yourself.
