MI ACE Initiative

MI ACE Initiative

Centers:

The Michigan ACE Initiative raises awareness about the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) throughout the State of Michigan. ACEs include child physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, physical and emotional neglect, and family dysfunction. ACEs can have a lasting, negative effect on health and well-being and are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness and substance abuse in adulthood. Working with diverse leaders and a network of trainers and community champions, the Michigan ACE Initiative is focused on bringing statewide awareness to ACEs and implementing projects to build a trauma-informed and resilient Michigan.
