100% of our children can be trauma-free and thrive

Introducing New Mexico’s 100% Community initiative.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Survey

The ACEs Survey was developed as part of the Adverse Childhood Experience Study published in 1998. The survey helps communities identify the magnitude of ACEs impacting our children, students and adult family members. An overview of the study and survey are found on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site: www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/acestudy.
