To advance our mission and support system of care values, we offer events and trainings. Many are done in partnership with other community organizations. To arrange a training, contact us.

ACE Interface

In the 1990s, the CDC and Kaiser Permanente conducted a landmark study on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). They discovered that ACEs and psychological trauma are the greatest indicators of later health, safety and opportunity outcomes over the lifespan. During this ACE Interface 2-hour presentation, you’ll learn:

  • more about the ACE Study
  • the impact of stress on the brain and nervous system and how that affects a person over the course of their life
  • ways to encourage and promote resilience in youth and adults so together we can create a healthier community

This FREE presentation is appropriate for both mental health professionals and community members. It is provided in partnership with SJC Cares, Oaklawn and Beacon Community Impact. Click on a date to register!
