Empowering Human Resilience Through Scientific Discovery and Strength-Based Innovation
The mission of the Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience is to advance human resilience to adversity by designing evidence-based solutions through interdisciplinary research, healing therapies, and community training and empowerment. This is accomplished through the work of our three divisions: Research, Healing, and Community Training & Empowerment.
By conducting cutting-edge research focused on human resilience, our scientific discoveries are paving the way for tomorrow's breakthroughs in mental health therapies to address the needs of trauma survivors. Today, our Healing division works with a variety of clients, ranging from Veterans and first responders to UCCS students and community members, with a focus on helping individuals and families heal from trauma. And our Community Training & Empowerment division provides trainings and workshops to empower individuals, communities, and organizations with the tools they need to build mental health resiliency.
