Your opinion on the notion of turning Cumbria into an ACEs-aware, trauma-informed community.

An ACEs-aware, trauma-informed community is an area where this knowledge of how adverse, traumatic experiences can affect the brain is commonplace. It's an area where all key local services integrate this knowledge into the way they interact with people every day; and where residents across communities form links and work together to not only help mitigate (or overcome) the effects of trauma for the current generation (and themselves), but to also prevent it as far as they can for future generations.

What is your opinion of this idea and how your workplace/ service could fit into it?
