ACE Collaborative Partnership Initiative Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities Phase 1: Understanding ACEs Presentations

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in understanding the origins of physical, social, mental, and societal health and well-being.  Research now shows that leading causes of disease, disability, learning and productivity issues, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neurodevelopmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). 

Phase 1: MCCC and Collaborative Coordinators will partner to deliver approximately 3 - 5 ACE Interface Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities presentations per Collaborative community. 

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has contracted with Minnesota Communities Caring for Children (MCCC) to provide presentations to partners, community members, and parents connected with their local Children’s Mental Health and Family Services Collaboratives about the ACE Study, neurobiology, and resilience strategies using the ACE Interface Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities presentation.  Participating Collaboratives’ communities will learn how ACEs impact people’s lives and what we can all do to dramatically improve health and resilience for current and future generations.
