Growing Awareness and Building Community
The ACEs Indiana Coalition is dedicated to growing awareness on Adverse Childhood Experiences and building self-healing communities. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events in a child's life that can have negative and lasting effects on a person's physical, mental and emotional health. In addition, self-healing communities focus on the implementation of trauma-informed interventions, local policy improvements and paradigm shifts in how we assist children and families. Through self-healing communities and appropriate interventions, we can help individuals heal from Adverse Childhood Experiences.
