Resilience programs are soaking up a huge amount of resources in our schools and workplaces without achieving the desired outcomes.
However, a new research project will review some of these programs to create positive changes and make them evidence-based to improve their effectiveness.
In younger people, self-criticism and lack of self-compassion are associated with poorer mental health and goal attainment. Did you know approximately 7 per cent of Australian children experience anxiety disorders?
Researchers at Flinders University are looking to evaluate resilience and wellbeing programs that target behaviours including self-criticism, self-compassion, anxiety and depression.
With your help, the researchers will be able to create a life free from mental illness through improved wellbeing and resilience programs.
