Daily News Online - People with mental illness need to be resilient

In this series, Like Minds Taranaki manager Virginia Winder shares stories to foster understanding and openness about mental health.

“I think people with mental illness are really resilient and they are not given enough credit for staying alive and for wanting to do more than just exist.”


That was an amazing story. It really resonated with me that this nurse was able to conquer her illness enough to get her masters degree, which is a huge goal of mine.

It really gives me hope :slight_smile: Thank you so much for that!

Many Blessings,



My last therapist said I was very resilient - this is a common word to describe many people living with mental illness
