Life isn’t always fair…we don’t all start at the same place on the starting line. How we manage the journey can be as important and sometimes even more important than how or where we started it.
Stress and adversity can come in many forms. Psychological resilience is defined as an individual’s ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity – or simply put “bounce back” from difficult experiences. American Psychological Association writes “Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. It involves behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone”.
At THE LILY PAD, we provide fun, outdoor experiences that are facilitated by trained professionals in mental health and education, and promote personal development in the areas of resiliency and social skills. Research has shown that these skills are crucial to the development of emotionally intelligent individuals who are able to effectively manage themselves and positively contribute to the world around them.
We truly appreciate the continuous support and your generous donations, your contribution will dramatically help us develop and succeed in future endeavours. Without your involvement and generosity, we would not be able to aim high and reach our potential. Thank you again for your generous and continuous support. Thank you, sponsors!
