ACES stands for "Adverse Childhood Experiences," These are traumatic experiences such as: Neglect,Household Violence, Substance Abuse, Racism, Bullying and/or Caregiver Mental Illness that occurs before the age of 18.
The more ACEs a child experiences, the more likely they are to have: COPD, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Poor Academic and Work Performance, an Increased Risk of Suicide, Significantly Reduced Longevity, and Substance Abuse.
Without a support system, survivors will experience chronic stress which leads to weakening of our immune systems and the potential of an autoimmune disease, attention deficiencies, low self-worth and low self-esteem.
