A public health approach to promoting young people’s resilience

Association for Young People’s Health, June 2016

Young people face a wide range of challenges in their lives from moving schools to family breakdown to bullying. Building resilience can support better outcomes for them whatever challenges they face. This resource from AYPH, funded by Public Health England, and developed with input from the Early Intervention Foundation, provides a new focus on public health approaches to supporting young people’s resilience.

The AYPH Resilience Resource builds on PHE’s framework for young people’s health which was published in 2015.  It highlights 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.
