Resilience Online Lunch Break on February 8 2022, 13:00 - 14:00 hrs
"Understanding Individual Resilience – Building Skills for a Sustainable Recovery"
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of mental health for individual well-being and for adaptive societal responses to crises. Resilience research identifies the biological, psychological, and social mechanisms that keep individuals from developing lasting stress-related disorders when confronted with trauma, life crises, or chronic adversities. It then aims to harness this knowledge to improve prevention and rapid recovery. Promoting mental health in populations as diverse as the workforce, disadvantaged groups, the young, or the elderly requires close cooperation of science, politics, and society taking into account socio-economic conditions and cultural frameworks.
The series of one-hour “Resilience Lunch Breaks” will allow for discussions on research findings and political and societal implications and will address issues related to prevention-oriented research. It is organised by the International Resilience Alliance (intresa), the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) in Mainz, and the Representation of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate to the EU, in cooperation with other European partners. We invite you to learn more about resilience and how our insights can translate into political action and a change of societies.
