About ACEs Aware

The Office of the California Surgeon General and the California Department of Health Care Services are leading a first-in-the-nation statewide effort to screen children and adults for ACEs in primary care, and to treat the impacts of toxic stress with trauma-informed care. The ACEs Aware initiative is built on the consensus of scientific evidence demonstrating that early detection and evidence-based intervention improves outcomes. The bold goal of this initiative is to reduce ACEs and toxic stress by half in one generation, and to launch a national movement to ensure everyone is ACEs Aware. For more information, visit the ACEs Aware website.
This webinar is part of a series of monthly educational webinars that offer practical information for primary care and behavioral health providers on understanding toxic stress and providing trauma-informed care. Information about the webinar series and recordings are posted on the ACEs Aware Educational Events webpage. Please email your questions or comments to info@ACEsAware.org.
