Introduction to ACEs and toxic stress
The impact of our relationships and experiences, even during childhood, can significantly influence our overall health and well-being. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refer to potentially traumatic events that occur before the age of 18. These experiences have been found to be strongly associated with chronic health issues, mental health disorders, and substance abuse problems in both adolescence and adulthood. Furthermore, ACEs can have a detrimental effect on education, job prospects, and income potential. However, it is crucial to note that ACEs can be prevented.
ACEs are surprisingly common, affecting a significant portion of the population. According to a survey conducted across 25 states, approximately 61% of adults reported experiencing at least one type of ACE before the age of 18. Alarmingly, nearly 1 in 6 individuals reported experiencing four or more types of ACEs.

To assess and measure ACEs, a standardized questionnaire called the ACEs questionnaire or ACEs survey is typically utilized. This tool enables researchers and professionals to gather valuable information about an individual’s childhood experiences and their potential long-term effects.
