Adverse Childhood Experiences Among Yolo County & California Children

Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 7.00.44 PMChristy Bethell did a data run for Yolo County from the Data Resource Center on Child & Adolescent Health. One of five children in Yolo County have an ACE score of 2 or more. The report is attached here, and I've also posted it into the Clips section. 


Even decades after ACEs have occurred, studies demonstrate a strong dose-response effect between the experience of ACEs and adult health.2 Burgeoning neuroscience, biologic, epigenetic and social psychology studies reveal potential mechanisms for this enduring impact.3 Promising methods to promote resilience and prevent or ameliorate the impact of ACEs are also evolving rapidly and focus on developing resilience and safe, stable, nurturing relationships in the home and community.4 Many studies on ACEs have been retrospective in nature, asking adults to recall their childhood experiences and then examining the prevalence of various chronic conditions and economic outcomes. The recent 2011/12 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) now provides a first ever profile of ACES among US children ages 0-17 years (Table 1).
