GLOSSARY
re·sil·ience
The ability to adapt and rebound from traumatic thoughts and events.
Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress. It means "bouncing back" from the mental illness that plagues one's life. Resilience allows one to combat the onslaught of negative thoughts and/or behaviors. Resilience doesn't have to be done alone, look within your community and family for emotional support.
