It is improbable that you will go through life without facing adversity. You could face adversity, for example, from stressful work projects, missed targets, relationship breakdown, or illness. How you cope with these challenges can strongly impact your mental health. If you cope negatively, this could add to the stress of the situation and potentially lead to a mental illness such as depression. If you cope positively, you can learn from the experience. Resilience is an approach to mental health that aims to develop your ability to cope positively with adversity.

The EssentialSkillz Resilience eLearning course explains how you can develop resilience with reference to four areas – emotional, mental, social, and physical. The course outlines simple, practical ways to help you react more positively to challenges referring to these areas. For example, when you are in a difficult period, leveraging your social connections for support can be a beneficial means to overcome those difficulties. The course further describes how you can develop your capacity in these four areas. For example, it outlines simple ways to implement a healthy diet and exercise regime to increase your physical health.

The course is highly interactive and uses a variety of case studies, active learning, and quiz questions to reinforce the learning objectives. Some downloadable PDF worksheets are included, and you can use these worksheets to help develop your resilience.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Resilience course can be customised to meet your needs. This enables your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
