The long term impact of negative childhood experiences

20 NOVEMBER 2017 / Insight

“The film is a documentary highlighting ground-breaking research about the impact of ACEs on children throughout their whole lives. ACEs are traumatic situations and events in a child’s life which can have long-term negative effects on their health and well-being. As well as all forms of abuse and neglect, ACEs include experiences such as parental substance misuse, parental mental health problems or having a parent or carer in prison. The film beautifully crafts together statistics and first-hand testimony.”
