Resilience in a key facet in positive mental health. The majority of early research on mental health resilience focused on individual level interventions. More recently there has been a growing focus on community resilience, in response to threats such as climate change, economic recession and COVID-19. The measurement of community level resilience is an emerging field, with most frameworks focusing on disaster resilience. Christine will explore the development of a mental health related framework for measuring community resilience in England using secondary data sources.
