Overcoming Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Research-Education Project
We are currently working on a community survey with a research team from Carleton College to better understand the prevalence of different types of abuse, neglect, and other potentially traumatic experiences that may have occurred in the lives of South Asians in Minnesota and elsewhere during childhood.
The survey is for ANYONE of SOUTH ASIAN descent living in the US.
This research will help us to create trauma-informed interventions to alleviate negative outcomes in the future generations and also better tailor our community empowerment campaigns to the needs of the communities we serve and promote resilience and social well-being. In the long run, we hope that this pilot will lay a foundation for building a more comprehensive body of knowledge on the prevalence and, in time, effects of ACEs specific to immigrant communities in Minnesota.
This report presents findings from the Minnesota South Asian Health Assessment Tool (SAHAT) survey, including recommendations for policy, research, and practice to address health disparities as well as approaches to integrate the health needs and culture of South Asians into the mainstream health care system.
