Death. Illness. Poverty. Abuse. Nearly 50% of American children have had an adverse experience before the age of 18.
And the statistics paint a stark picture. Research shows that children who live in toxic environments grow into adults who struggle with substance use disorder, mental illness, suicidal tendencies, and other health issues. As an ACE score increases, so does the risk of serious health, social, and emotional issues.
But there is good news too. One stable and caring relationship can mitigate the impacts of trauma. We can rally to create a nurturing, resilient community.
We offer trauma-informed certification trainings to spread a message of hope: parents, educators, medical practitioners, coaches, mental health practitioners, and other community members can build resilience. With the right tools.
We offer courses developed by the Community Resilience Initiative to provide those tools.
