The more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to which a child is exposed, including: abuse, incarceration of parents, and exposure to family and community violence, the more likely the child is to suffer from negative physical and mental health in adulthood —from heart disease to depression. CII’s Integrated Services Model addresses trauma through services in: evidence-based mental health, early childhood, youth development, and family support to treat the whole child and the entire family.
