Illustration and animation for the Adverse Childhood Experiences animated explainer video.

We were commissioned by Blackburn with Darwen Council, in partnership with Public Health Wales, to create an animation, which would illustrate the physical and mental impact of repeated ACEs on long-term physical and mental health.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences that occur before the age of 18 and are remembered throughout adulthood.

Repeated ACEs cause chronic ill health in later life: like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and health-harming behaviours such as problem alcohol use, smoking, poor diets and violent behaviour - and ultimately premature death.

We told the story of ACEs, and their physical and mental impact, by using an animated character, who narrated their own experiences,

The character talks about the ACEs he experienced from childhood, through to adulthood.

Don't worry, there is a happy ending!
