305 Reduce Suicide Risk by Enhancing Resilience

Resilience is defined as the ability or capacity to adapt to and withstand stress while continuing to function successfully in times of adversity. Resilience stems from the ability to manage one's emotions and remain aware of the emotions of others, and it depends on the ability to tap into both internal and external resources, even while experiencing stress.
