How We Help
ACEs Too High
ACEsTooHigh is the go-to site for background, news and information about:
- The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study
- Developmental neurobiology — how severe stress and trauma affect a child’s developing brain and nervous system
- Epigenetics — how our genes turn off and on in response to our experiences and social environment
ACEsTooHigh is also a site that covers what towns, cities, states, social service agencies and organizations, schools, the juvenile justice, criminal justice, public health and medical communities are doing to reduce the burden of ACEs for the tens of millions of people in the United States who have high ACE scores. Links to those projects and programs are posted on the ACEs in Action page. There’s also an ACESTooHigh network for people who work in these communities to share best and worst practices, information about upcoming events, and to set up groups who want to collaborate on projects.
ACEsTooHigh is a place where people can tell their personal stories about how child trauma affected their lives and health, and how they have — or have not, as the case may be — made peace with the past. Those can be found on Our Stories. You’re welcome to set up groups on the ACESTooHigh network also.
