Idaho Documentary Explores How Childhood Trauma Affects Lifelong Health Issues
Child abuse, neglect and growing up in a seriously dysfunctional household are all adverse childhood experiences or ACES for short. And if these experiences are ignored, unresolved or left untreated these experiences can create childhood trauma and toxic stress that can create lifelong mental and physical health issues.
Idaho Public Television is exploring how ACES impact Idahoans through a new, locally-produced documentary on-air and on-demand this month. Find broadcast information here.
Idaho Matters spoke with Idaho Children's Trust Fund Executive Director Roger Sherman and St. Luke's Community Health Manager Jean Mutchie.
