Maine Resilience Building Network’s mission is to promote resilience in all people by increasing the understanding of the impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the importance of building resilience through protective factors such as positive relationships.
What is Community Resilience?
RESILIENCE is the capacity of a system to adapt under difficult circumstances. - Anne Masten
As it related to health, Community Resilience is the ability of a community to use its assets to strengthen public health and healthcare systems.
