HOW WE RESPOND TO A TREMENDOUS NEED

Childhood trauma and adverse experiences (also known as ACES) are understood by many to be the most important public health epidemic we face. Childhood trauma is known to affect the structure and architecture of the developing brain and thus is linked to lifelong physical and mental illness.

Trauma happens in the lives of so many children that it can no longer be viewed as an “oddity” or a problem for health professionals alone.

To make a positive impact, it requires a community-wide response across all disciplines and citizens with the BRCAC at the helm.
