About the program
Resilience is defined as being resourceful, flexible, emotionally agile, and having problem-solving abilities. While some resiliency comes naturally, it can also be learned.
This resilience program (Q-Life) is intended to address feelings of being overwhelmed, anxiety, and perceived stress through proven skill development like mindfulness, nutrition, cognitive hygiene and problem solving, to name a few.
We invite students to participate in the Q-Life program to help you be better prepared for dealing with everyday challenges and stress.
