Care

What is Trauma?

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) describes trauma as events or circumstances experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening, which result in adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and well-being.

What is the impact of trauma on health?

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, conducted by the CDC and Kaiser Permanente, revealed that the more an individual is exposed to a variety of stressful and potentially traumatic experiences, the greater the risk for chronic health conditions and health-risk behaviors later in life.
