The Maine Resilience Building Network was formed in February, 2012. In 2011, a research study and report called Working with Adverse Childhood Experiences: Maine’s History, Present, and Future “Working with Adverse Childhood Experiences: Maine’s History, Present, and Future” was conducted for the Maine Children’s Growth Council Health Accountability Team.
Our Mission is to promote resilience in all people by increasing understanding of the impacts of traumas and stressors such as Adverse Childhood Experiences and the importance of protective factors like positive relationships. We aim for a comprehensive, cross-sector, and systematic approach to foster education, awareness and action.
MRBN welcomes new members at any time, and meetings are held five times/year.
Since 2012, MRBN participated in research, and has reached out to communities throughout the state. By working with local partners, we have offered over 600 offered trainings to help spread the word about ACEs and help build resilience and increase trauma informed work in Maine schools and communities.
