Summary of the theme and why it is important: Depression and stress are some of the biggest challenges that today’s students face. They live in an increasingly fast-paced environment, preparing themselves for a complex and uncertain future. Learning to deal with these challenges and to navigate life is a little like learning to be a circus performer: balancing on the tightrope, juggling a few balls, letting go and trusting that others will be there to catch us. Although definitions of resilience vary, resilient people are better equipped to cope with challenges, to fail and then stand back up, and, as such, to experience better mental and physical well-being.
