Let’s make Scotland the first ACE-Aware Nation in the world!
Let’s reach every single one of our 5 million citizens with information about adverse childhood experiences. That’s the vision at the centre of this unique conference!
On 26th September 2018, more than 1000 citizens of Scotland came together to think about how we can achieve this vision. They were joined by friends from across the UK. The fact that the conference was being held at the Glasgow SECC shows the level of excitement that exists to do such visionary thinking!
Our efforts were led by invited international Key Note Speaker, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris. When she began her career as a paediatrician, she hadn’t anticipated becoming a global campaigner for tackling adverse childhood experiences, but that’s exactly where her career has taken her. With her knowledge of the science of ACES, and her experience as director of San Francisco’s Centre for Youth Wellness, she has plenty of insights to offer us as we progress our own national ACES journey in Scotland. This was Dr. Burke Harris’ first time in Scotland, and we felt so lucky to have her!
Dr. Burke Harris was joined by some of the leading speakers in the country. All of them had insights to share about how we can tackle ACES in Scotland.
The day promised to be inspirational and unforgettable.
