This fall the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area released its report on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and what is being called the “public health crisis of our time”. ACEs are negative and traumatic childhood events that are now associated with many lasting physical and mental health risks. The full report can be found at https://www.cfka.org/ACEs.
