Organizations that can help you (and your kids) create Positive Childhood Experiences
This post supported by @ameracadpeds @CDC. Opinions are my own.
If you have been a reader of my blog for a while, you already know I am very passionate about health topics, especially anything related to mental health. I have been collaborating for a while with the CDC to educate parents about Adverse Childhood Experiences and how to prevent them.
For those of you that are new here, let me tell you a bit about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Finding Your Three to help prevent them. ACEs are potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood that can have lasting and negative effects on the child’s health that can lead to several chronic diseases and leading causes of death such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and suicide.
We have also discussed that ACEs are preventable and finding a support system (Finding Your Three) is essential for building safe, stable, and nurturing environment for the kids.
After all these years, I am glad to be shifting the conversation topic on a very positive way. We are now going to be talking about Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs), activities and experiences that enhance the child’s life, resulting in successful mental and physical health outcomes. We are also going to learn what community organizations can help parents and kids have those PCEs.
Learning about PCEs with Dr Jones
I had the pleasure to interview Dr Candice Jones M.D., Board certified Pediatrician serving the Orlando Community. We discuss ACEs, PCEs, cultural identity and more.
You can find Dr Jones on her Website, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube

It's so encouraging how much more aware we are about the impact negative experiences can have on childhood and later in life. The interview is fascinating

I’m a bit of a mental health advocate too. My blog kind of centers around my daily life with cross contamination OCD. I can’t wait to read more posts like this one from you!
