"Somebody is much more likely to need mental health services if they have experienced childhood adversity. The all-party group on the prevention of #ACEs has looked in detail at the evidence base on policies to prevent this adversity." @PaulWilliamsMP

Great to see @scottishprisons pursuing #traumainformed approaches for women's prisons, an approach that has secured excellent results elsewhere (see 2 examples below) @HumzaYousaf

I know as soon as I Tweet this I will think of more resources! Hopefully, you will as well. Please add more resources for #Trauma #TraumaInformed

PLEASE, PLEASE, don't forget to build relationships with students this school year!

Safety is a key principle of #traumainformed working. @MikeArmiger described today how people have different versions of safety whether that's up high, in corners etc.

Great to see how even years after the #ACEs #traumainformed movement took off in the US, it's still going strong (and stronger) today!

#ACEs are a major root cause of suicide, with ACE scores very strongly correlated to a person's likelihood of attempting suicide. #traumainformed approaches have also been shown to reduce suicide attempts in prisons and juvenile centres. We need to make the most of this knowledge

I am the 264th Member of Parliament to support the Wave Trust's @7030Campaign campaign. Early Intervention is essential if we want to create a more equal society and reduce health inequality.

An #ACEs questionnaire has been sent to all MPs in Parliament, the first time this has ever happened. Please Tweet your MP to ask them to anonymously fill it in - thank you! https://t.co/F7QfE7HgK2

To raise awareness about the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences, the @WAVE_Trust will be sending a survey to all MPs to calculate @UKParliament's ACE score.

Thanks @theresa_may for agreeing to look at this important survey. Tweet your MP to see if they'll fill it in too!
