Community and familiar surroundings after adversity have both been proven to help in resilience building. This proof is often represented in the results of numerous research studies. Community can be familiar surroundings, a spiritual home or church, trusted friends, or family members.
Some ways to build and maintain community:
- Keep connections to important groups like family, places of worship, and volunteer organizations.
- Be informed, knowledgeable, and skilled to help neighbors, family, and friends.
- Participate in community or neighborhood preparedness or everyday activities.
