Alright Twitter, next time something on here depresses you, have a listen to Audrey absolutely p*ssing herself at Daddy being a bloody idiot.

You mentioned use of the term on that 'next steps' list you put together didn't you? Can I see it again?

What are your thoughts on the term "ACEs", Helen? Might not be as catchy, but I'm using "adversity and trauma in childhood" or similar much more now - captures the breadth that ACEs can miss (i.e. It's not just about the 10 ACEs, adversity and trauma are different etc.)

Nice idea, unfortunately I think the people least likely to engage with it would be those who might benefit the most... you'd need to be open to having your mind changed!

Another useful critique. If these all influence policy as much as the less evidenced, more evangelical stuff has, then we'll really be getting somewhere.

Good man. I noticed they said screening can be useful as part of a wider strategy, was cautious... but they meant screening by trained experts, with *appropriate, validated tests*, alongside other comprehensive holistic assessments and access to relevant evidence-based services.

Hi ! I'd like to know your thoughts on what should and shouldn't focus on... more resources for improving the StR training process might mean less for advocacy etc.

But I think one thing is DOES do is it would stop people from bleating on about just one thing. Liverpool scores highly for culture for example, but the crap overall score makes you focus on the idea that it's not enough to be good at one thing.

I'm not as grumpy as you about composite indicators, as long as you can see each individual component as well. Personally I'd be delighted if Government just used this from , I think it's great

I don't think decision makers appreciate how much an effect buildings and surroundings have on people. That sense of identify, civil pride, belonging... when that goes we feel crap.

Compare with the design. Feels like when you order a Maccies and the floppy burger with brown lettuce looks about as much like the advert as I do Poldark
