Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2020). Adolescent and School Health Surveys.
Identification of trends in youth health risk behaviors and in school health policies and practices are strategies CDC uses to achieve its mission to improve the health and quality of life of adolescents.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood. ACEs can include violence, abuse, and growing up in a family with mental health or substance use problems. Toxic stress from ACEs can change brain development and affect how the body responds to stress. ACEs are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance misuse in adulthood. However, ACEs can be prevented. This resource further explains more about ACEs and how raising awareness can help to prevent them.

Technical packages help communities and states prioritize prevention activities with the greatest potential for impact. A technical package has three parts. The first component is the strategy or the preventive direction or actions to achieve the goal of preventing ACEs. The second component is the approach. The approach includes the specific ways to advance the strategy. This can be accomplished through programs, practices, and policies. The third component is the evidence for each of the approaches in preventing ACEs or its associated risk factors.
