From 1995 to 1997, over 17,000 participants from within the Kaiser Permanente organization throughout Southern California underwent one of the most comprehensive research studies ever conducted attempting to link the presence of childhood abuse, neglect, and other trauma with negative health outcomes later in life.

The ACEs study, or adverse childhood experiences, determined that there is a direct correlation between childhood trauma and chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases of all kinds, as well as a myriad of mental health conditions.

The study involved the use of a questionnaire featuring 10 types of childhood trauma identified as most common within the sample community involved in the study.
