Exploring the Intersection of Opioids, Adverse Childhood Experiences, and Suicide
The opioid crisis is integrally linked to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and suicide. This session will explore that connection and how addressing risk factors for one can have a positive impact on prevention of the others.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe the connection between opioid and other substance misuse, adverse childhood experiences, and suicide.
2) Understand how addressing and treating the symptoms of ACEs early can prevent exposure in new generations and reduce the number of people at further risk for substance use and suicide both.
3) Demonstrate knowledge of evidence-based strategies for prevention of ACEs and suicide. And awareness of available CDC tools and resources.
