The Resilience Project is a well-being initiative of Greater Gallatin United Way - offering behavioral health & mental well-being education & outreach.
Greater Gallatin United Way launched The Resilience Project as one strategy to build healthier and more resilient communities. The Resilience Project aims to drive a shift towards a new collective mindset of behavioral health and mental wellbeing. When we are more aware and value behavioral health and mental wellbeing as much as physical health, we improve whole-person health.
In 2015, a team began to formulate ideas to bring greater awareness about resilience and how to develop it within individuals and a community. The team orchestrated a 2½ day Resilience Conference attended by individuals from nonprofits, schools, government agencies, law enforcement, the medical community, businesses and faith organizations. Attendees began asking for more. Today, we have established a number of resilience-focused workshops for individuals, organizations, and workplaces.
Through collective efforts we are raising awareness about behavioral health and mental wellbeing; encouraging people to learn more about the signs and symptoms of mental health and illness; sharing resources that support recovery and mental wellbeing; and, providing tools and strategies for building resilience. We believe these efforts will result in healthier and more resilient communities.
The Resilience Project is just one impact strategy GGUW utilizes to help build a healthier and more resilient community.
