Reflections on Resilience

Family & Children's Service of Ithaca / Reflections on Resilience

Reflections on Resilience is a community project to collect and share stories, poems, photographs or photo-series, songs, videos, and reflections on the theme of Resilience. These stories showcase the contributions from members of the public in order to raise awareness for the daily mental health struggles and triumphs we all encounter, and to connect with one another by sharing our experiences.
