ACEs Too High

The ACEs Too High website grows out of research by Centers for Disease Control and Kaiser Permanente showing that “Adverse Childhood Experiences” (abuse, neglect, parental divorce, etc) correlates closely with chronic illness in adulthood, including autoimmune disorders, heart disease, some types of cancer, COPD, as well as depression and other mental health conditions.

The ACE study is described on the CDC’s website. A video trailer can be seen on the ACEs Too High Resources page.
