The Resilience Project is a brand new, exciting initiative from Compass GO… and the project team will deliver material based on the results of the Adolescent lifestyle survey to secondary school pupils in the form of assemblies, workshops and focus groups. The heart of the project is to inspire young people to feel empowered with who they are by recognising their gifts, strengths, and passions to positively build their own resilience with a sense of how they proactively prepare for and manage their own wellbeing.
The Resilience Project aims to explore resilience in relation to mental health and well-being from a holistic approach. This will help give young people the knowledge they need to feel confident in managing life’s challenges as they arise, and the skills to do so.
Young people need resilience more than ever, studies have shown that young people who learn healthy coping skills earlier on are able to navigate challenges they may face such as bullying, exam stress, self- doubt, struggles with body image, self-esteem problems, mental health issues and friendship issues. As a project we aim to supply young people with tools they need to thrive at home, in school and into adulthood.
The Resilience Project will cover topics such as (but not limited to):
- Diet and exercise
- Body image
- Healthy relationships
- Emotional resilience
The project will also work in collaboration with community projects and partners within the local area with the aim of young people developing new skills, developing relationships within their communities whilst positively contributing to their local area.Back to Compass GO… North East Lincolnshire Mental Health Support Teams
