Module Description

As humans we live in an uncertain world. All of us experience loss, transition and change due to our own decisions or circumstances outside of our control. How can we prepare our minds to be resilient and healthy in a world of constant change? In this module, we'll discuss what resiliency is and how mental health plays a part in how we think, feel and respond to life stressors. We'll explore the definition of mental health, and learn cognitive strategies to manage emotions that are part of the human experience. We'll discuss what true self-care looks like for you, and how the practice of self-compassion can boost a sense of self worth and wellbeing in life.
