The scientific community has come to understand that childhood experiences significantly shape the developing brain, and impact lifelong health and well-being. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) like abuse, neglect, and exposure to household dysfunction are linked to poor physical and mental health, chronic disease, lower educational achievement and economic success, and impaired social success in adulthood. Learn how communities have reduced ACEs, and built resilience in their populations.
