Ohio ACEs Impact project

Ohio ACEs Impact project

Exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is a pervasive problem in Ohio and across the nation. More than two-thirds of Ohioans have been exposed to an ACE, with more than half of Ohioans exposed to two or more ACEs.

Led by the Health Policy Institute of Ohio and informed by a multi-sector advisory group, this project includes policy briefs, fact sheets and a resource page to build on and amplify current efforts to address ACEs in Ohio.

The Ohio ACEs Impact Project provides state policymakers and other stakeholders with tools to:

  • Understand the health and economic consequences of ACEs
  • Quickly find information about what works to impact ACEs
  • Identify areas where Ohio can align with the evidence and improve
