This program is an 18-month learning and quality improvement collaborative to support California clinics in screening for and responding to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in children and adults.

The program goal is to integrate screening and response for ACEs within healthcare settings in a way that enhances relationships between patients and providers, helps connect patients to supportive services, and leads to better outcomes such as reduced disparities and positive experiences with care.

Training and technical assistance support may include, but is not limited to:

  • Toolkits and resources to support ACEs screening implementation
  • Monthly coaching support
  • Access to technical expertise from organizations like UCSF Center to Advance Trauma-Informed Health Care in addition to safety net clinics leading similar efforts at their organizations
  • Three, one-day in-person convenings
  • Two optional regional workshops
  • Webinar-based learning, including a mix of expert- and peer-led sharing on topics participants identify as challenges
  • Site visits to organizations who have successfully implemented ACEs screening and integrated trauma-informed care principles into their workplaces
  • Support measuring and tracking your organization's progress in ACEs screening and response

Eligible participants include:

  • Federally qualified health centers (FQHC) and FQHC look-alikes
  • Community clinics, rural health clinics, and free clinics
  • Ambulatory care clinics owned and operated by public hospitals
  • Indian Health Services clinics
  • Other primary care (or pediatric) practices serving mostly Medi-Cal patients
