Having the basics in life is really important for our mental health. We know that a lot of young people don’t have some of these basics - such as good housing, having enough money to live, and feeling safe.
At times we can forget to give basics like a healthy diet, enough sleep, exercise and fresh air, enough attention.
Remember - that resilience is not all your responsibility. We can't be in control things like affordable housing and having enough money to live (remember about 'changing the odds'?) But you can look for small resilient moves that can help.
Here are some of our ideas for 'Basics' resilient moves.
Good enough housing
Money to live
Access to transport
Exercise and fresh air
Play and leisure
