Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, are stressful events or experiences that occur in childhood. Studies have found that as the number of ACEs increased in the population studied, so did the risk of experiencing a range of health conditions in adulthood.
Bristol is an ACE aware city and held a conference on ACEs in March 2019. Presentations included:
Adverse Childhood Experiences - Public Health
An ACE Aware Bristol - Bristol City Council
Responding to ACE Research - Warren Larkin Associates
