Resilience Center Leiden

The Resilience Center Leiden investigates how stress impacts the mental health of young people. For that, the team studies a multitude of factors, such as childhood experiences, the social environment, psychological factors, and neurobiological factors. With this multidimensional approach, we aim to ultimately understand the mechanisms that aid resilient responses to stress.

The Resilience Center Leiden is part of the Institute of Education and Child Studies at Leiden University and is being directed by Professor Dr. Anne-Laura van Harmelen.
