Adverse Childhood Experiences – Understanding Students Early Experiences

What is ACEs ?

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refer to stressful or traumatic events experienced during childhood, including abuse, neglect, family dysfunction, or household challenges such as substance abuse or mental illness. These experiences can have lasting effects on physical and mental health throughout a person’s life. By understanding ACEs and their potential impact, we can better support individuals in overcoming adversity and promoting resilience. Our ACEs page offers valuable insights and resources to help you navigate and heal from these experiences, fostering a healthier and more resilient future.
