From Surviving to Thriving: Developing Personal and Academic Resilience

Students can move from merely surviving their post-secondary experience to actually thriving. This resource can help them build resilience and minimize the negative impact from stressful situations.

Whether students complete this on their own, with their parents or friends, or as part of a school initiative, it can allow them to reflect on potential and actual stressors and choose healthy coping strategies to deal with them.

From Surviving to Thriving is inspired by research on resilience and has been improved through feedback received by researchers, educators, students, and mental health professionals. This resource was developed by the Great-West Life Assurance Company’s University and College Community of Practice.
