The Michigan ACE Initiative was created just over two years ago and has devoted its energy to provide awareness of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences in Michigan.  This initial focus on awareness was accomplished through a variety of ways: (1) presentations to various groups, organizations and agencies across the state, (2) supportive training of four cohorts of Master Trainers that we remain in partnership to assist in local grassroots involvement, and (3) the consensus of our State Steering Committee in the development of a Policy agenda.
