The Need For CASA
Adverse experiences are potentially traumatic events that occur in a person's life. Toxic stress from adverse experiences can change mental development and affect how the body responds to stress. Adverse experiences are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance misuse in adulthood, amongst other things. However, adverse experiences can be prevented, and in cases that it was not prevented, effective therapy, support, and resources can make a significant difference in the individual's future outcomes.
When people are equipped with the tools and resources to help them overcome and evolve beyond adverse experiences, overall life outcomes are better for the individual and those around them, molding a
solid foundation that can penetrate generations to come.
