This report explores the resilience, among farm families experiencing drought in South Australia. Two resilience processes were examined: mental health and wellbeing and livelihood. Resilience isn't just about the absence of psychological distress, but about how such distress is managed; nor is it about the capacity to stay on farm, but about the capacity of farm families to maintain a source of livelihood. This strengths-based approach to resilience during drought explored the personal, social and contextual factors enable farm families in drought-affected areas of South Australia to get by; how these factors differed by age, gender and region; and the implications for enhancing resilience among farm families.
