Delivering emotionally engaging programs and practical, evidence-based strategies to build resilience.
IMPACT AREA: Preventative mental health and wellbeing
The mental health statistics in this country are confronting. The Resilience Project’s mission is to teach positive mental health strategies to help people become happier and more resilient.
They share emotionally engaging stories with hundreds of schools, workplaces and communities to help make the topic of mental health more accessible, focussing on three key pillars proven to cultivate positive emotion; Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM). Their programs also have a strong focus on connection, purpose, kindness, emotional literacy and physical health.
The Morris Family Foundation supports the Mornington Peninsula Foundation that contracts The Resilience Project to allow schools in the region to access the program that would otherwise be unable to afford it.
