Resilience is an important psychological concept and a way of coping with stress and catastrophe that we all need. People who lack resilience, who become overwhelmed and distraught with situations that occur in everyday life, often find themselves in a persistent negative mood and may even show signs of mental illness. Focusing on building resilience and adaptive coping skills, this program profiles two young adults as they learn strategies for overcoming stress and challenges. It touches on physical as well as mental health and suggests ways of emerging from and staying out of depression.
