  • Resilience is that ability to “bounce back” from stress, or growth through “the struggle.” Through this growth, a person can come back from a difficult time as a stronger person with more ideas and experience about life. Ideas for building resilience after struggles include: 1.) Knowing your supports; 2.) Thinking about the struggles later. Reflecting back on what was learned and where growth occurred; 3.) Learning to look ahead for struggles; and 4.) Taking time to create some “positive struggle.” Jennifer L. Hughes, Ph.D., M.P.H., is an Assistant Professor and Licensed Psychologist at the UT Southwestern Center for Depression Research and Clinical Care (CDRC). She is the head of the CDRC Risk and Resilience Network, which aims to build partnerships with local schools and youth community organizations to implement mental health promotion and suicide prevention programs, as well as to work together to better understand resilience and risk in youth. Dr. Hughes is focused on understanding the value of struggle, including positive struggle, in building resilience. In her free time, she creates positive struggle for herself through her Women's Adventure Club!
