Center for Child Counseling's White Paper: A Public Health Approach to Fighting ACEs in Palm Beach County identifies opportunities for a community and cross sector response to the ACEs public health crisis.
This paper shows just how many of the community challenges we face today—from violence, lack of a capable workforce, substance abuse, addiction, suicide, and chronic disease—are correlated to people younger than 18 who have experienced multiple, unbuffered ACEs and toxic stress.
This paper is not an exhaustive list of Palm Beach County's possibilities, opportunities, or partnerships. Rather, it is a working document designed to stimulate conversation around innovation for improved child well-being that will result in community success and opportunity.
This paper is meant to be a living document, with updates, corrections, and changes that will educate Palm Beach County on the public health model, generate conversation, and create opportunity for strategic actionable steps forward in effectively addressing ACEs.
