Mental Health & Resilience:

“There is no health without mental health.”

 - David Satcher (US Surgeon General) 1999

We aim to bring focus to the importance of mental health in the care of individuals and families living with chronic illnesses by raising awareness, furthering a system-wide trauma informed culture of care, and promoting resiliency.

Work to date has focused on developing a better understanding of coping and resilience in children with chronic illness, defining factors that impact these and identifying those that can be modified to promote positive psychological growth.
