3055.0 Resiliency and Wellness Strategies for Individuals Living with Mental Illness

Monday, October 29, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
The onset of mental health symptoms can disrupt lives. This session offers a thought-provoking window into two strategies that can be used to impact the onset and course of mental illness: (i) the social determinants of mental illness and (ii) the identification of internal factors, unique to each individual, that build resilience in the face of challenging mental health symptoms. This session will be useful to people who seek to develop policy, design programs, or offer interventions that aim to build resilience.
