Anyone work for a high-tech company? Know of any initiatives to create ACEs awareness among its employees?

Hi Sylvia. Yes, sort of!
I'm part of a pretty small start-up tech company working to quantify the impact of trauma, post-traumatic growth as well as staff and organization health and wellness through biometrics. I've spent the last 17 years working with the trauma paradigm from a trauma-informed care, self-care, and leadership perspective. In other words, I'm the "trauma guy" on a team who comes from the tech world.
Hi, do either of you all need to talk to a nurse with an ACES score of 6, an expert in this area, who recently uncovered major cognitive damage and who hasn't been productive since I had to use a computer/cell phone 3 1/2 yrs ago? lol
I think the major issue with the computer is the visual processing and incongruence - I can only read one or two words at a time - the brain goes into FFF with more than a couple of pics or words on a page. If you know of solutions to deal with or if you know how to live in today's age without using a computer or smartphone let me know.
If I can help you by providing any input with my experiences please let me know.
With love, gratitude and heart, Leslie
Thanks for sharing your experience, Leslie. I'm trying to put myself in your position, I can't imagine working in modern healthcare (or so many fields) without being able to look at screens. If you don't mind me asking, have you sought treatment?
