A new study shows that local community networks in Washington State have succeeded in reducing the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) such as child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, household substance use, and parent mental illness. The three-year study released by the ACEs Public-Private Initiative (APPI), along with its evaluation partners Mathematica Policy Research and Community Science, revealed that community efforts led to increased graduation rates, decreased smoking and alcohol use among pregnant women, and a drop in teen drinking, among other results.
