"Intergenerational Effects of Caregiver Adversity: Colorado Data and Opportunities for Action"
When: Tuesday, May 2, 2017 8:30 AM - 9:40 AM MDT
The ability of children to thrive begins long before they are born and it starts with healthy relationships and caregivers. In recognition of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, please join the Office of Early Childhood, in partnership with Early Childhood Colorado Partnership and Children’s Hospital Colorado as we delve into Colorado Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) data connected to parent’s early adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the role that plays in outcomes for their children.
Dr. Sarah Watamura of the Stress Early Experience & Development (SEED) Center at University of Denver will present findings from her work with population health survey data related to ACEs.
Michele Lueck and Tamara Kenney of the Colorado Health Institute will share findings on the link between parent and child mental health in Colorado.
Together they will engage audience participation to discuss a clear call to action for how we can work together to build strong families and a prosperous future for Colorado.
