Building Resilience

The Building Resilience Network focuses on addressing trauma and strengthening mental health among children of all ages.

One driving force behind lagging child health and education outcomes are persistently high levels of child poverty in North Louisiana. Safe environments and nurturing caregivers allow children to build resiliency by protecting them from impacts of adverse conditions like poverty. Nurturing the social and emotional development of children, so they may succeed in school and beyond, depends on strong partnerships between parents, their out-of-home caregivers, and the community.
