PolyU study shows family resilience can help improve family members’ mental health

A study conducted by PolyU’s Faculty of Health and Social Sciences has found that at least one in ten core family members exhibited psychological trauma symptoms due to the pandemic.

 

Dr. Janet LEUNG, Associate Professor of the Department of Applied Social Sciences, and Prof. Daniel SHEK, Associate Vice President (Undergraduate Programme) and Chair Professor of Applied Social Sciences, pointed out that family relationships and individual mental wellbeing among respondent families were generally affected by recent stressful events and the pandemic, but family resilience served as a buffer against these impacts. As such, it is important to promote family resilience in order for family members to be better able to support one another during adversities.
