The mental health of young people has been significantly impacted by the pandemic. Unfortunately, children and teens are not immune to what is now being termed the ‘psychological pandemic’. What children need most in the current environment is support, understanding, empathy, and encouragement from caring adults.
If there is a panacea to the adversity caused by the pandemic, then it is the building of resilience. Resilience is the capacity to face, overcome, be strengthened, and transformed by adversity. Never before have parents needed the skills, the knowledge, and the strategies to build resilience in their children as much as they do now. There are seven integral and interrelated components of a resilience mindset that can help young people thrive and develop healthy coping strategies.
This Special Report explores the ‘7 C’s of Resilience’ and includes suggested strategies on how adult carers can best facilitate them. We hope you take a moment to reflect on the information offered, and as always, we welcome your feedback. If this raises any concerns for you, a loved one, or the wellbeing of your child, please seek medical or professional help.
