What are ACEs?
Public Health Wales define ACEs as:
‘Traumatic experiences that occur before the age of 18 and are remembered throughout adulthood. These experiences range from suffering verbal, mental, sexual and physical abuse, to being raised in a household where domestic violence, alcohol abuse, parental separation or drug abuse is present’.
This short animation explains how ACEs can damage a person’s health throughout their life.
What is the ACE Learning Network?
The network helps professionals across Wrexham and Flintshire find out more about ACE initiatives, projects and developments - as well as relevant training and research.
