Welcome to The Resilience Project
We deliver emotionally engaging programs and provide evidence-based, practical wellbeing strategies to build resilience.
We are grateful to work with hundreds of schools, workplaces and communities to support mental health and wellbeing. Through presentations and school curriculum, The Resilience Project App, and Wellbeing Journals; we share the benefits of Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, and easy ways to practise these in everyday life.
Our approach to mental health is to tell emotionally engaging stories. We use humour and vulnerability to connect with our audience. All our practical strategies are evidence based, and our schools program has been evaluated by the University of Melbourne.

Why The Resilience Project Exists
Our mission is to teach positive mental health strategies to help people become happier and more resilient.
We share emotionally engaging stories that help to make the topic of mental health more accessible. The research is clear; the more positive emotion you experience, the more resilient you will be. For that reason we focus on three key pillars that have been proven to cultivate positive emotion; Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM). Our programs also have a strong focus on Connection, Purpose, Kindness, Emotional Literacy and Physical Health.
