ACEs Aware

Beautiful mid adult African American nurse or doctor smiles while checking a little boy's heartbeat. The nurse is volunteering at a free outdoor clinic. She is wearing a stethoscope and scrubs. The boy's mother is holding him.

Without intervention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can create long-term physical, mental, and behavioral risks.

The good news is, healthcare providers have a unique opportunity to prevent and respond to ACEs in clinical settings, using evidence-based tools and trauma-informed strategies that promote family resiliency.

Futures Without Violence is a grantee of the ACEs Aware initiative, providing Core and Supplemental training that enables Medi-Cal providers to earn an ACEs Aware certification, allowing them to bill for ACE screening.

Note: This training series NOT limited to California providers, we welcome anyone interested in learning more about ACEs to attend!
