Some National Support Data
New national data released by the Child & Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) shows that traumatic experiences are widespread among U.S. youth. Nearly half of all U.S. children 17 and under have had at least one of nine adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) last year and more than 20 percent experienced two or more.
ACEs include physical, mental, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and trauma. These events are tallied up and the score is an insight into health issues. Those with a history of adversity don’t always have addiction or abuse issues in adulthood, but the cells remember the childhood difficulty.
