** New Study Reveals Annual Cost of Childhood Adversity in California is Approximately $113 Billion
------------------------------------------------------------ ([link removed])

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/

The Center for Youth Wellness announces the release of an in-depth study on the health-related cost of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in the state of California.

A number of studies have investigated the cost of child maltreatment, but the current study, entitled "Adult health burden and costs in California during 2013 associated with prior adverse childhood experiences ([link removed]) ," is the first to examine the cost associated with adult health conditions -- asthma, arthritis, depression, COPD, and cardiovascular disease -- that are linked to ACEs.

That cost, as it turns out, is substantial.

Previous studies on child abuse and neglect have estimated the lifetime cost to the United Statesto be approximately $124 billion ([link removed]) annually. This new study found the health-related costs of ACEs to California alone were approximately $113 billion a year. That figure includes ACEs-related health care costs totaling $10.5 billion annually, with more than $102 billion in the cost of disease burden, including premature death and years of productive life lost to disability.
