ACEs In Uniform : The Intersection of ACEs, Military and Civilian Life

More then half of all individuals in the military and their families receive services in the civilian sector. ACEs are high among enlisted military and their experience in combat make them more likely to experience negative health outcomes as veterans; however the military is also a protective factor for some. In this session, participants will explore how ACEs intersect with the military "lifecycle" - from being the child of a enlisted parent to the experiences of those in active duty and then as a veteran. Panelists will provide insights on how to address ACEs with military families and veterans - whether in military or civilian settings - from the perspective of healthcare, judicial services, and lived experience.
