MARC National Summit

Shining a Spotlight: Communities Promote Coverage of ACEs & Resilience

  • Jan 30, 2018

The bad news was that children in Montana were not thriving.

The good news was that the Helena Independent Record was writing about it.

A five-part newspaper series in October 2015 began, “For a myriad of reasons that experts say remain unclear, a state known for its mountains and fly fishing is one of the worst in the nation for youth.”

The articles examined statewide statistics on child health, explained the ACE study, profiled a 24-year-old woman who moved to Montana to escape childhood trauma and quoted Todd Garrison, executive director of ChildWise Institute, backbone of the Elevate Montana network.
