Turn Challenge into Change and Stress into Success
Build Your Resilience
The Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Directorate delivers regular online Programmes with the aim of helping the individual to strengthen resilience.
Resilience is the ability to recover from setbacks and adapt to challenging circumstances. It is a tool that empowers the individual to feel effective and capable of handling uncertainties. This eventually helps to safeguard mental wellbeing. The good news is that resilience is a collection of skills that can be learnt and enhanced!
Through information provision, discussion,
and the dissemination of take-home activities
, participants will learn and practice key behaviours that help to build resilience. The last session is dedicated towards a resource that participants are given in order to work on their resilience in the longer-term.
By the end of the programme, participants are envisaged to gain knowledge and skills related to:
- Learning about themselves
- Regulating emotion and behaviour
- Challenging negative thoughts
- Becoming more attuned to personal strengths and able to practice them regularly
- Gain knowledge and skills related to building meaningful connections
Ultimately, these competencies aim to improve motivation, productivity, confidence, relationships, life satisfaction, resilience, and mental wellbeing – amongst others!
The sessions will run as small groups once a week (1 ½ hours) online for 7 weeks and cater to both English and Maltese speakers.
Applicants must be over 18 years of age. Priority is given to first time applicants.
