The Resilience Forum is for ANYBODY (with a pulse!) involved with or interested in resilience research

Session Summary
This forum aims to highlight the need for adults to be having effective conversations with young people in the period between asking for help and receiving it. This includes all who have been referred for specialist help and are waiting for treatment, those who don’t meet the threshold criteria for treatment, and those who have been discharged. We believe that equipping and empowering all who come into contact with young people in feeling confident in having a good conversation around resilient moves can make a huge difference to their mental health. We will introduce free resources that have been partly inspired by The Resilience Framework and produced by clinicians and none-clinicians who have grass-roots experience of working with children from deprived backgrounds with multiple ACEs. This incudes the Tough Times Toolkit, The Lemonade Project Resource Book, the Life and Lemons Journal and more. These resources can help any adult (no matter what background) have great discussions around resilience and support young people who might slip through the mental healthcare gaps. Some of these resources are available to download in the useful reading section below and we encourage you to read them before attending the session if you can.
