First aid for resilience

2020 was an unusual year. Our resilience was severely tested. With a “First Aid for Resilience” box, Logo Brussel did everything in its power to strengthen resilience. Municipalities, day care centres, care homes, local service centres, community centres and schools were given a box. With emoticon buttons, posters, sayings in the window and workshops, participants could strengthen their resilience during the ten days for mental health.

It is satisfying to share experiences with others: sharing is healing.

The Huis voor Gezondheid (House for health) offered psychological support for health care professionals. During free individual or group sessions, health care professionals were given some help toward strengthening their resilience.

A really lovely process, I came out of it so much stronger.
