The Adverse Childhood Experiences Response Team (ACERT) Program, which started in Manchester, brings awareness, prevention and intervention about the impact adverse childhood experiences can have on individuals and families and how it connects to health and behavior in adulthood.
The program takes a two-pronged approach:
- Trauma-informed training for first responder populations and social service agencies.
- A referral process that connects children to partners in the community for services.
New Hampshire ACERT will hold a virtual conference on Thursday, June 10, from 2-4 p.m. for communities and individuals who would like to learn more about the program. Register for the conference.
