CDC Calls Childhood Trauma a Public Health Issue
CDC Calls Childhood Trauma a Public Health Issue. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released their findings in a report concerning adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on Thursday. . Such experiences include witnessing home violence, family substance abuse, family mental health issues, abuse and neglect. The report found that one in six people in the U.S. has experienced at least four ACEs. Such people are at a higher risk of death due to half of the top ten leading causes of death. ACEs also negatively affect life opportunities, like completing high school or future employment ... The more types of ACEs a person has, the higher their risk for negative outcomes, which will limit their opportunities their whole life, Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC Deputy Director, via NPR News. According to the report, preventing ACEs could also prevent millions of high school students from dropping out. It could also prevent millions of cases of obesity, heart disease and depression. Preventing ACEs can help children and adults thrive and has the potential to substantially lower the risk for conditions like asthma, cancer, depressive disorder and diabetes, Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC Deputy Director, via NPR News. The report states that the serious health effects of ACEs demand more public prevention efforts. From the individual to the state, the report lays the responsibility for preventing ACEs at all levels of society.
