The Public Health Burden of Early Adversity
Schlueter, Lisa J.; Watamura, Sarah Enos
ZERO TO THREE, v37 n3 p4-10 Jan 2017
Severe and chronic stress in early childhood has enormous physical and mental health costs across an individual's lifespan. Unfortunately, exposure to early life adversity is common, and costs accrue to individuals and society. This article highlights several promising approaches to buffer children from the negative health consequences associated with stress exposure. In particular, suggestions are made to enhance public awareness of this increasing public health crisis, as well as implementing and supporting policies that strengthen families and ultimately support healthy child development.
