Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)

This was a large study (17,000 people) done from 1995 to 1997, to determine the impact of childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. The study concluded that childhood abuse, neglect, and exposure to other traumatic stressors had a profound impact on a person’s long term health and wellbeing.

Using ACE questionnaire scores the researchers were able to determine a higher incident of addictive behaviours, heart disease, liver disease, depression, intimate partner violence, unintended pregnancies, and Suicide attempts.
