Cultivating resilience in the wake of COVID-19

While there’s much talk about a potential echo pandemic of mental illness following COVID-19, such a result is not inevitable. We can all cultivate resiliency by focusing on the actions and attitudes that strengthen our mental health.

Resilience based on our ability to engage, adapt, and grow from periods of stress and adversity is a major predictor of how well we will emerge from this global challenge.

By re-shaping today how we think about, talk about, and act on mental health, we can lay the groundwork for greater resilience in the future.
