All of us have the capacity to face difficult events and carry on but for some of us this feels harder than it should. Learning to understand your resilience, recognising where it is weak and taking steps to build it will help you manage stressful situations better.
Take a few minutes and find out how resilient you are, the areas you should improve and how you can improve them.
You will be presented with 5 screens each with 5 statements, read each statement then indicate how much you feel that statement applies to you.
Our Resilience Check is based on the Resilience Scale (Wagnild & Young 1993). No one reviews your results so if you feel you need help urgently, visit this link for detailed information about accessing emergency services from the NHS.
