How to use ACEsTooHigh Network - it's easy!

Think of this network as a Facebook just for the community of people who are implementing -- or thinking of implementing -- ACE concepts in international, national, state or local agencies, organizations, or communities.

It's incredible just how much activity is taking place across the country -- people are instituting a trauma-informed or trauma-sensitive approach in education, juvenile justice, mental health clinics, hospitals, child welfare, prisons, domestic violence programs, cities, towns and neighborhoods.

This network can help you achieve your goals faster by sharing resources, news about upcoming events, and information about best and worst practices.  

It's easy to start: Just sign up, fill out your profile, and go to "My Page" to start adding information about what you're doing.

If you're looking for others who are doing what you're doing or what you want to do, start a group and invite people to join. 

This ACEs Too High Network also links to the ACEsTooHigh.com news site, which is for the general public. Much of what is posted there ends up here, with the addition of details that are of more interest to this community. 

 If you've got a question, send me a message by putting a comment on my wall. I'll be glad to get on the phone with you to answer any questions.
