What We’re Tracking and Why:

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study shows with scientific evidence that adversity early in life is at the root cause of many of health, behavioral, educational and social problems we struggle with.

The science of Resilience spells out what is needed to mitigate the impacts of adversity and help us to thrive.

We are tracking the levels of adversity experienced in our region and the progress being made across all sectors through our focused work to build resilience.

This awareness of adversity and resilience is often referred to as “trauma-informed.” Safety is the first principle stated in trauma-informed care.
