Start your Rhode to Resilience

As we all begin settling into a new normal, we know that the toll on our emotional well-being may not end with a vaccine. That’s why the healthcare experts at BCBSRI recently created this Rhode to Resilience video series.

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from challenges. At BCBSRI, we think of resilience as having four elements: gratitude, sense of purpose, connection, perspective. In these videos, our doctors and care managers help you build your own resilience.
