Event description

Description

Adverse Childhood Experiences, or “ACEs,” are stressful or traumatic experiences that disrupt the safe, nurturing environments that children need to thrive. Exposure to ACEs can lead individuals toward the adoption of unhealthy habits and the onset of negative long-term health, education and economic issues.

The more exposure to ACEs a person has, the more his or her risk increases for the potential issues. However, there is hope! Research shows that providing safe, stable and nurturing relationships early in life can buffer the damaging effects of childhood adversity. The future prosperity of any society depends on its ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation. When Shelby County and Memphis invests wisely in children and families, the next generation will pay that back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship.
