Adverse Childhood Experiences can have a lasting impact on a person for their entire life. The statistics are sobering: people with six or more ACEs die nearly 20 years earlier on average than those without any. A person with four out of 10 ACEs is twice as likely to develop heart disease.
The good news is that people are born resilient. And if resilience fades because of trauma, it can be taught. People can survive trauma and can live long, healthy lives. But they can’t do it alone – which is where we come in.
