Exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is a pervasive problem in Ohio and across the nation. In 2020, HPIO launched the Ohio ACEs Impact Project and released a series of policy briefs on the health and economic impacts of ACEs and elevated evidence-based, cost-effective strategies that prevent ACEs.

The latest brief in this series, Strategies to prevent ACEs in Ohio: Promoting positive norms and intervening to lessen harm, describes how a shared sense of responsibility for the health and wellbeing of children can prevent ACEs. This webinar will highlight four evidence-informed strategies from the brief:

  • Community-based violence prevention
  • Drug courts and family treatment courts
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Behavioral health treatment

Our guest speaker will discuss the state’s efforts related to trauma-informed care and resources available to individuals and organizations.
