Stacking rings – Mental health risk and resilience

Stacking rings – Mental health risk and resilience

A stacking rings activity to stimulate conversation around risk & resilience.

Our stacking rings activity was inspired by Dr Jehannine Austin’s jar analogy. 
We are born with a certain amount of genetic vulnerability (yellow balls), but over time, we also accumulate stressful experiences (orange triangles), which can tip us over into an active episode of mental ill-health (full jar).
Protective factors such as exercise and good sleep add ‘rings’ to the top of our mental health jar, and expand its capacity.
