What is the Moreland Youth Resilience Survey?

The Youth Resilience Survey is an online tool which places young people at the centre of their own learning.

The online resilience survey collects, collates and analyses self-reported characteristics of young people in terms of their:

  • strengths
  • hopefulness
  • incidence of anxiety and depression, and
  • Risk and protective behaviours

Using the resilience survey tool, we will be tracking and monitoring resilience outcomes in Moreland’s young people over a 3 year period commencing in 2018.

What is resilience?

Resilience is the ability to draw upon the strengths within yourself and around you to flexibly respond to life while remaining true to yourself and creating positive relationships with others.

Who can participate?

The project is open to all primary and secondary schools in Moreland, youth specific agencies and young people aged 10 - 18.
