Understanding Resilience

Anyone – Online

Challenges in our lives can be unavoidable and stressful, but what can we do to support ourselves to be able to manage these challenges when they arise? Cultivating our resilience helps us to navigate our experiences and be able to ‘bounce back’ while we grow and learn. 

In this online session, you’ll be introduced to the basics of what resilience is and why it is so important in our daily lives, as well as learn some ways to begin building our personal resilience. 

Understanding Resilience has been created in collaboration with CMHA Kelowna’s Learning and Development team and Peer Supporters, with contributions from people with lived and learned expertise.

This session will be hosted online. To join, access to the internet or phone is needed. Instructions on how you can join will be sent once registration is completed.

At CMHA Kelowna and Discovery College, our main priority is always our community’s well-being. Following the advice of the Canadian Government and to ensure the safety of everyone who is due to take a Discovery College course, we are choosing to postpone our in-person courses at this moment in time due to COVID-19. Discovery College has created an online series, Coping with Current Events, to help create community through learning and support throughout this time. Find out more on the Course page.
