The sample ranked themselves as clinical (M=31.12, SD=8.18), finance (M=17.35, SD=5.48), confidence (M=17.14, SD=5.15), education (M=14.43, SD=4.06). The mean score of psychological health was 6.20 (SD=1.83). Resilience was found to be related significantly with stress and psychological health with the correlation coefficient is -0.195 and 0.064 respectively. Besides, four sub-scale of resilience are also highly correlated to stress and psychological health except meaningfulness in these participants.
