Back Resilience Lab

The Resilience Lab is all about good mental health! The fun, interactive exercises have been designed to help you learn all about self-care.

Please note that we are currently unable to run Resilience Lab in-person due to the circumstances around the Coronavirus. We are instead running Lab Online throughout this time (same times and dates as listed below) and we hope you can join us – you can sign up using the button above. Read more about OTR’s availability here

Let’s face it, everyone at some stage in their life is going to be faced with something that they struggle with. Knowing how to get through these tricky times and ‘bounce back’ from them is really important for our health and happiness. At OTR’s Resilience Lab, we can inspire you to do just that.

The Resilience Lab is run by a team of trained young people with a whole host of ideas about how to cope with stress, stay relaxed, discover strengths, reach out to others and keep on top of things when life gets tough.

The Lab runs as a series of free and fun weekly workshops in Bristol and Yate, packed full of activities, games and ideas to help look after your mental health and build your resilience.

Bristol – Wednesdays, 6-7.30pm (ages 14-25)
Term-time only
@ 1-2 Perry Road, Bristol BS1 5BQ

South Glos – Thursdays, 5.15-6.30pm (ages 11-18)
Term-time only
@ Yate Library, Unit 44, BS37 4AX

The Resilience Lab is for schools!

We think mental health should be on the National Curriculum. But since it’s not – boo! – we take the Resilience Lab into schools, colleges, universities and other youth settings across Bristol and South Gloucestershire and do it ourselves. We do this every week and we love it. So, if you’d like us to visit your school, college or youth club, drop us a line at


Train The Trainer!

Want to learn how to run your own Resilience Lab workshops?

We run a comprehensive four-day training programme for anyone working with young people aged 16-25 in Bristol. In it, you will learn all about the psychological theory of resilience, as well as the nuts and bolts of how to structure and run each workshop.

The best bit – this training is FREE! Drop us a line to find out more at 


The Resilience Lab is digital!

The Resilience Lab is also a digital project, be sure to check out some of online resources we’ve been developing! We’ll be adding new stuff all the time so check-back regularly, or sign-up to the OTR E-Newsletter to receive regular Resilience Lab tips and tricks direct to your inbox!
