Resiliency Ohio Recently Launched

The website http://www.resiliencyohio.org/ is designed to help children and youth with mental and emotional health challenges and their families learn about and embrace resiliency.

The concepts, and website materials were developed by Resiliency Leadership Ohio, which is comprised of youth experiencing mental health issues and their family members.

Resiliency is defined as an inner capacity that when nurtured, facilitated, and supported by others empowers children, youth, and families to successfully meet life's challenges with a sense of self-determination, mastery, hope, and well-being.

The website includes a video of Ohio youth and families speaking about the role of resiliency in their lives and the importance of having a resiliency perspective for mental wellness.
