Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and social determinants of health can lead to lifelong problems with substances, mental health, behavioral disorders, and chronic health issues.

Using the ECHO model of didactics and case-based education, participants will learn to recognize many different signs of ACEs and be given the information and skills to help those children in need. Via the Zoom platform, participants will learn from national and local experts. Sessions are open to all clinicians, including behavioral health providers, teachers, SBHC staff, and community health workers.

Continuing Education Credits will be available for participants: AMA, AAPA, CNE, APA, ASWB, and CHW.
