First local resilience survey, Singaporeans have good resilience in 4 aspects: physical, mental, social and financial

Income Insurance Limited and SMU’s Centre for Research on Successful Ageing (ROSA) revealed that Singaporeans are resilient mentally, physically, socially, and financially according to a landmark study that established Singaporeans’ baseline resilience in these domains for the first time. SMU Professor of Sociology (Practice) and Director of Centre for Research on Successful Ageing Paulin Straughan commented that this study rendered visible what constitutes resilience and how the various dimensions of resilience can be enhanced through meaningful interventions. Significantly, this study also demonstrated that boosting resilience in any of the four resilience domains allows Singaporeans to protect and advance their holistic well-being.
