Resources to help build a community's resilience

Resilience has become a very popular concept in the educational and mental health fields. Some authors suggest that rather than identify the risk factors or deficits that could result in future problems, a prevention-based, resilience-focused framework is more effective.

Resilient individuals thrive and succeed in spite of what appears to be insurmountable odds. They are able to bounce back in the face of adversity.

But resilience does not always come naturally. It must be encouraged and built over time.
