Building Resilience through ACEs Informed Networking
The Strong BRAIN Institute, founded through a 5-year gift from Ballad Health, is the
preferred resource for promoting the awareness and empirical study of Adverse Childhood
Experiences (ACEs); for promoting the development and dissemination of evidence-based
practices that prevent, reduce, or mitigate the negative effects of ACEs on health
and health disparities; and for promoting a trauma-informed citizenry and workforce
in the Appalachian Highlands region and beyond.
