Resilience and Mental Health among Juveniles
- Konaszewski, Karol
AbstractThe aim of the first study (Study 1) is to analyse the relationship between resilience and the broadly-understood mental health of juveniles admitted to youth education centres. Study 2 aimed to understand the direct and indirect role of resilience in shaping the mental health of juveniles. In the model we tested, we looked at the relationship among resilience, coping strategies, and mental well-being. The first study involved 201 juveniles, the second involved 253 juveniles. The results of both studies have shown that resilience is an important predictor of mental health of juveniles. The obtained results indicate that work on the level of juvenile resilience leads to strengthening of positive mental health indicators and buffering of negative indicators.
