Emphatic Call to Action! – Parents, Teachers, Child Experts, and Community Leaders

In a National Institutes of Health article entitled “The Role of Mindfulness in Reducing the Adverse Effects of Childhood Stress and Trauma,” we can see how childhood stress can impact our lives as well as generations to come.

Toxic stress can result from single, prolonged stressors (recurrent emotional abuse), multiple stressors that become toxic (living below the poverty line and having limited educational opportunity), and/or traumatic experiences of greater emotional intensity or severity.
