Welcome to the Child Health and Disability Prevention Program Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Aware Toolkit page. The CHDP ACEs Toolkit provides resources to professionals who work with children and families exposed to ACEs. ACEs are stressful or traumatic events, such as abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction occurring during childhood and adolescence. Exposure to ACEs results in long-lasting effects on an individualís health, including nine of the top leading causes of death and early mortality in the Country. Providers can find resources in the Toolkit on categories covering different areas of need identified in the Pediatric ACEs and Related Life Events Screener (PEARLS).

The community provider Toolkit identifies resources throughout Los Angeles County supporting early intervention to help build resiliency for their patients and help reduce the risk of severe health conditions in adulthood. Letís increase awareness and prevention of ACEs by screening and providing valuable resources, which improve patientsí physical and mental health.
