- ACEs are potentially traumatic events experienced before age 18. Examples of ACEs include: physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect, mental illness of a household member, substance abuse by a household member, parental divorce or separation, and incarceration of a household member.
ACEs screening is a systematic approach to assess a person’s exposure to ACEs.
Toxic stress is the chronic activation of the stress response from exposure to serious childhood adversity in the absence of adequate support or protection from adults.
