New Training: Become ACEs Aware in California and use trauma-informed care to heal the LGBTQ+ community

Posted December 27, 2021

California LGBTQ Health and Human Services Network’s new Out About ACEs campaign

From perinatal to specialists, all providers can use trauma-informed care to help heal the LGBTQ+ community.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic or stressful life events that occur before a person is eighteen. ACEs describe ten categories of adversities in three domains: abuse, neglect, and/or household dysfunction. Scientific consensus demonstrates that ACEs are the root cause of some of the most harmful, persistent, and expensive health challenges faced by our state. Learn more about the California LGBTQ Health and Human Services Network’s ACEs Aware initiative.

Healthcare providers can help fight this crisis by becoming ACEs Aware. You can learn to respond with evidence-based interventions and implement trauma-informed care by taking a free, two-hour “Becoming ACEs Aware in California Training.” Medi-Cal offers a reimbursement per patient to providers who are ACEs Aware certified. Learn more about the training and REGISTER NOW.
