Lion Health Initiative

Lion Health Initiative Summary


Lion Health Initiative focuses on youth development, knowledge building and linking youth to community events to address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Believing community building through individual development is how generational networks are built and maintained.


Lion Health seeks to transfer knowledge and lessons through sharing and processing anecdotal experiences used to navigate adolescence and find tools that can carry participants through the transition into adulthood. We implement wraparound supports and ongoing trainings to help actuate plans to identify and help youth address ACEs. LHI works with youth and their support teams to identify strengths in educational, vocational, leisure and other areas of life to help identify and treat ACEs at the earliest time post trauma-exposure.
