Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is a term used to describe all types of neglect, abuse, violence or distressed family environments that children under the age of 18 may experience. Our childhood experiences have a tremendous lifelong impact on our health and the quality of our lives. The ACE study identified links between adverse childhood experiences and future risky behavior, psychological issues, and illness. In 2014, ACE data was collected in the Oregon Student Wellness Survey. In the Linn, Benton, and Lincoln region slightly more than one-third of youth report living with a household member who is/was depressed or mentally ill and about one-third report having ever lived with someone who is/was a problem drinker or alcoholic.
