State Leads learn more about the Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience Framework. Developed by Prevention Institute in 2016 in collaboration with city governments, community leaders, and public health and violence prevention practitioners, Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience framework (ACE|R)  explains the need to understand trauma at the population level.

ACE|R has been integrated into efforts at the city level in locales that have experienced adversity to address issues including community and domestic violence, mental health and suicide, substance use and misuse prevention, Adverse Childhood Experiences, and climate resilience. Learn how ACE|R can be used as a tool to identify community strengths and promote healing in your efforts to promote health, safety, equity and wellbeing for children and their families.
