Resilience: A Powerful Force for Global Mental Health

As governments and aid agencies look to improve mental health worldwide, they could do well by embracing the concept of emotional resilience.

Chronic stress can limit cognition, memory and emotional intelligence — the very skills that help people succeed in life. Steve Leventhal’s organization Corstone applies science-based techniques to promoting emotional resilience and decreasing stress. Corstone teaches these skills to school-age children in stressed, high-poverty areas. His approach could accelerate and improve the impact of aid programs worldwide.
