Reply to "Children and Toxic Stress: The Discussion Continues"

I think what is critically necessary is better integration of systems. This is a concept that is very important in behavioral health and I think it applies here. Screening for ACEs in routine medical check-ups is a great step and something that I hope gains more and more momentum. However, there also needs to be be better communication and interconnectedness among various social service systems. Obviously, it is much, much easier to say that than it is to implement it, but conversation is the first step towards action. When the conversations take place, ideas can follow, and then actionable items can emerge.
