    Maine Prison to Address Mental Health, Stress, Trauma

    Maine's corrections agency is working with a Massachusetts hospital to address mental health, stress and trauma impacting staffers and inmates.

    The Maine State Prison will hold wellness meetings Tuesday for staff members led by McLean Hospital clinicians. Such trainings will help staff manage and reduce the stress and trauma of their jobs and develop emotional regulation skills.

    Female offenders will also receive help advocating for their wellness needs.

    Three Maine State Prisoner staffers and Corrections Commissioner Randall Liberty have shared their experiences being affected by mental illness through the hospital's Deconstructing Stigma campaign.
