The Maine Resilience Building Network

Here you will find Information about the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study and learn more about resilience.

MRBN is a collective of individuals and organizations from throughout Maine. We focus on resilience in people and communities. Resilience is the ability to overcome stresses and adversity. Resilience is built through supportive relationships, positive experiences, and by learning skills. Resilience is unique in each person.



In childhood, positive experiences and trusting relationships can decrease the effects of adversity or trauma. For adults who have experienced trauma, what if someone asked, "what happened to you, and how do you think that’s affected you?" Then you could think about “what (or who) helped you during that time?”




    The Maine Resilience Building Network is making an impact.. We:

  • Educate about the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Support community groups to build resilience.
  • Share resources with one another.
  • Use a Collective Impact approach to make a difference in Maine.

The MRBN works together, building on the strengths of individual projects to generate interest and increase understanding.
