There are many factors that contribute to resiliency. These factors are often called protective factors. We have the opportunity to be a part of an environment that is supportive of individuals to help ensure that all people have the chance to enjoy a safe and happy life.
Protective Factors may include:
Good problem solving skills
Positive Peer Relationships
The Adult & Youth Mental Health First Aid courses outline specific protective factors for certain mental health challenges as well as communicating effectively with both adults and youth.
Community Mental Health
Community Mental Health periodically provides community members with the opportunity to become a Youth Mental Health First Aider and to learn a 5-step action plan that will help them be a helping hand for a young person in the mist of or developing a mental health concern and/or even in any typical situation.
