Traumatic early life experiences can alter brain development and increase the risk for psychological and physical health issues. Two independent organizations are developing innovative ways to help offset adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and build resilience in these at risk populations.
How do you think your experiences have affected your health and development? What has helped you build resilience? Do you have other ideas about how the community can help prevent or address ACEs? Leave a comment below and help get the conversation flowing.
