I worked in a school district as a mental health therapist for the last three years, and have learned a lot about the struggles schools face every single day.

In this episode, I talk about a hidden problem in our school system that many people don't realize. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) affect every school in America, yet so many schools are not equipped to help the kids who need help the most. 

Read more about the ACEs study here. 

Many times, students who get into trouble at school are often students who have an ACEs score. Students with an ACEs score of 3 or more are not likely to succeed in school.
