Is Resilience A “Mask”?

In an online article called Tackle reasons forcing nurses to be ‘resilient’, warn RCN members by  Junior Reporter and Online Assistant for Nursing Times, she writes, “Resilience is the “mask” that nurses are forced to wear because of workplace pressures and demands, members of the profession have warned during a discussion at the Royal College of Nursing congress this week.”

The attendees at the conference posed the question as to whether or not resilience is “a positive attribute and one to be aspired to in the modern healthcare workforce.” Continue reading “Is Resilience A “Mask”?”

Crowdfunding Kickoff

We believe that resilience is key to managing both personal and global stressors. We know that resilience can be learned. We help to build resilient communities; one individual at a time. With your help, we will provide no-cost training to three communities that research indicates would benefit from increased resilience, and, who we believe are in a position to make a significant contribution to building community resilience. Those communities are immigrants, students, and 1st responders. Click the image below to learn more about our target communities.

Tomorrow we launch our Indiegogo Crowdfunding campaign, Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond, in an attempt to raise the funds needed to do just that. Our initial target markets are federal, state and local government, social service, and non-profit programs that serve our target communities. These programs have limited operational budgets and even smaller training budgets with stiff competition for those training dollars. If we are to compete for those funds, we must be able to demonstrate the value of what we have to offer. Continue reading “Crowdfunding Kickoff”

To our valued supporters,

On May 15, 2019, we will embark on a crowdfunding campaign intended to finance six no-cost training sessions to three communities that research indicates would benefit from increased resilience, and, who we feel are in a position to positively impact the quality of our current and future lives. Those communities are immigrants, students, and 1st. Responders.

Children are our future. We all benefit from our future decision-makers becoming more resilient in an era where these Skills & Attitudes have not evolved as naturally as in past generations. Immigrants bring value by way of diversifying our thinking. They can have a stabilizing effect on our economy. We need to focus on what is good in them and help them to manage the adversities that brought them to us. 1st. Responders are our lifelines. They face adversity daily. We need to help them help us by providing Skills & Attitudes and support that will enable them to better manage the trauma that they encounter.

We will kick off our Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign soon. We had hoped to kick off in March 2019, but time passes quickly and we are working to layout our story and document our plan for funding. With the help of Alphonse, our very own videographer, we are creating a new video to promote our campaign and our cause. We’ll post updates as the time draws near.

Our goal will be to fund no-cost training and materials to three target groups: Continue reading “Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond”
