Topic: Taking a public health approach to resilience in young people – Ann Hagell & John Coleman, Association for Young People’s Health
Summary: Ann Hagell and John Coleman have been working with Public Health England and other partners to develop resources to help people working in front line public health to promote young people’s resilience. This means working in the school and community settings. This presentation will be in two parts.
In the first part, Ann will introduce the constructs and share a new on-line resource from PHE to promote resilience. It highlights the ways that services have successfully worked together, provides links to useful interventions and other resources, and draws on the perspectives of young people about what works well for them. We will look at the pressures young people face, the key elements and settings for promoting resilience, and how we make it happen in practice.
In the second part John will explore two examples of resilience promotion in more detail, drawing on a school-based interventions called FRIENDS FOR LIFE, and a programme called Healthy Minds. He will discuss the importance of developing relationship skills, becoming media literate and understanding mental health in building resilience in this age group.
