Preventing ACEs

Whether you are an adult looking to reverse the impact of your own ACEs, or a parent or caregiver keen to make sure that your children do not grow up with ACEs themselves, ACEs is preventable.

Stable, nurturing adult-child relationships and environments help children develop strong cognitive and emotional skills and the resilience required to flourish as adults. By encouraging such relationships ACEs can be prevented, even in difficult circumstances, and it is crucial to support and nurture children and young people as they develop and grow.

For adults who experienced ACEs in their childhood, support is available to minimise the impact of ACEs on their health, relationships and lives in general.
