Abstract: University students in Singapore today are facing mental health issues, prompting researchers to examine the mental health landscape among Singaporean undergraduates. While previous research on resilience has recognized the function of social networks in mitigating the harmful impacts of stress on one's mental health, research studying university-going youth remains scant. This paper seeks to investigate the relationship between Singaporean undergraduates’ level of social capital and psychological resilience. Using a survey administered to 50 current university students, the study found a significant positive correlation between bonding, bridging, linking social capital and resilience. However, using linear regression analysis it also found that bonding social capital to be a significant predictor for undergraduate resilience, while bridging and linking forms do not.
