Adverse Childhood Experiences

Macon Mental Health Matters has launched the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Community Resilience Initiative. This initiative aims to understand and address Adverse Childhood Experiences within the Macon-Bibb County community. ACEs refer to traumatic events that occur before the age of 18, including abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction. 

The Adverse Childhood Questionnaire is a tool used to measure various traumatic experiences up until the age of 18. This questionnaire helps identify the prevalence of specific traumatic experiences, allowing for targeted analysis and interventions to support affected individuals. 

ACEs significantly impact individuals' physical and mental well-being, education, and more. Addressing this issue is crucial to meet the needs of those who have experienced traumatic events. Macon Mental Health Matters is guiding the development of targeted interventions to prevent and mitigate childhood trauma and its effects in the Macon-Bibb area. By focusing on this issue, we aim to address the root causes of mental health challenges stemming from traumatic experiences. 

Understanding the importance of trauma on mental health is essential. We are excited to launch this new initiative to help our community confront and overcome the challenges associated with traumatic experiences.
