MRBN promotes building resilience for Maine’s children, families and communities by increasing the understanding of the impacts of trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). We work to strengthen families and communities by increasing protective factors and resilience-building relationships. We aim for a comprehensive, cross-sector, and systematic approach to foster education, awareness and action.
MRBN Upcoming Program Announcement
Join MRBN on Thursday, September 26th for a screening of the documentary BROKEN PLACES followed by a panel discussion. The film BROKEN PLACES explores why some children are severely damaged by early adversity while others thrive. In this documentary, by revisiting some of the abused and neglected children profiled decades ago, narrators are able to dramatically illustrate how early trauma shaped their lives as adults.
