Resilience

Health resilience is the ability to cope with a mental or emotional crisis and quickly return to the pre-crisis status.1 Resilience exists in people who develop psychological and behavioral capabilities that allow them to remain calm during crises or chaos and to move on from the incident without long-term negative consequences.2

SLTLab's Wellness App uses a survey to measure health resilience. The survey content to measure the health resilience has been newly developed by the Survivability Signal Intelligence Research Center(CRC), funded by National Research Foundation of Korea, based on several survey techniques.3
