Melissa Roberts, Bristol's Promise: Youth Networking Alliance, will explain Adverse Childhood Experiences’, Trauma Responsive Care, and their impact on our organizations and the people/children we serve. Adverse Childhood Experiences are stressful or traumatic experiences that can disrupt the safe, stable, nurturing environments children need to thrive and can cause toxic stress, which can lead to a lifetime of physical, mental, economic, educational, and social challenges. ACEs have been linked to the public health problems such as obesity, addiction, hypertension, and serious mental illness, and the economic burden of ACEs in our region. Bristol’s continued prosperity depends on what we do now to prevent these experiences and to mitigate their impact when they can’t be prevented.
