The Resilience Project

Trinity College, in partnership with The Resilience Project, are teaching students how they can practice Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness in their day-to-day lives, and how these practices can lead to greater happiness.

With research now showing that one in four adolescents have a mental illness, as a school and community it is important that we continue to help our students improve their mental health and find ways to equip them with the knowledge and tools to work their way through the challenges they face. 

Ultimately, the goal through this program is to develop compassionate, thankful and respectful young men who are able to remove the natural negativity-bias possessed by many humans, and instead more readily identify the positives that exist in their lives. 

The Resilience Project supports more than just students

Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and the family home.

The Key Pillars

The research is clear; the more positive emotion you experience, the more resilient you will be. For that reason the program focuses on three key pillars that have been proven to cultivate positive emotion; Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM), with Emotional Literacy being a foundational skill to practise these strategies.

Supporting Parents

Being a parent can be tough but an important part of showing up for your children, is first showing up for yourself. TRP@HOME offers a range of useful resources including podcasts, videos and a wellbeing hub that we believe is a great place for our Trinity College parents to check out.

The Resilience Project has been helpful because it has shown me that by doing things such as listening to quiet music can help relax me and calm me down. It also has provided me with many mindfulness techniques and other activities that support good mental health.
