Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are common. Many Tribal individuals, families, and communities have been impacted by childhood experiences causing physical and mental health adversities throughout the lifespan. However, with understanding and effort, individuals and communities can confront ACES and achieve positive health outcomes.

This Information Hub, launched by the National Indian Health Board, includes a Resource Basket designed for American Indian and Alaska Native individuals, families, communities, professionals, and leaders to  learn more about ACEs, research, tools, and interventions and to increase Indian Country’s capacity to address these adversities.
