2021 Diary

I’m delighted to announce that Sarah Henry Safeguarding SHS, as a licensed instructor for Mental Health First Aid England, has now trained over 250 people to become Youth Mental Health First Aiders.   

That’s over 250 wonderful professionals who now have the MHFA toolkit and knowledge to help them in their work with children and young people. 

This training is vital at any time but particularly during this unsteady time in which we find ourselves.

Is Everyone Invited?

‘Everyone’s Invited’ is an online platform where young people, children, children as young as nine years old have made disclosures about abuse they have endured in one of the places that they are supposed to be safe; in school. 

12,371 testimonials at the last count and a ‘community’ of 40,126 children who have joined.  

This is heart breaking. 12,371 children.  Children with a horrific story to tell. Traumatic sexual abuse experiences behind the school gates.

COVID-19: The 11th ACE?

Is COVID-19 the new ACE?  A once-in-a-lifetime Adverse Childhood Experience that will have affected all children, not just in the UK, but all over the world?

ACES don’t discriminate, and we know that for many children living through them, they are affected long into their adulthoods. Rarely, if ever, though have we seen an ‘Adverse Childhood Experience’ that has affected so many children, in such huge numbers collectively, universally at the same time; in live time. The original CDC-Kaiser study done in 1998 described 10 different Adverse Childhood Experiences. Has the COVID-19 universal pandemic brought a new ACE to the fore?

Staying Face-To-Face

Halfway through the pandemic I was told, “If you don’t get online with your training you will get left behind.” 

So I tried it, and for me it doesn’t work.  I have since kept my resolve to only ever deliver my safeguarding training courses and MHFA England courses face-to-face.

Here my top 4 reasons why;
1/The learning that happens within the training room – participants learn from each other, not just from me. I get to see lasting work relationships between agencies form, which strengthen safeguarding practice outside of the training room.
2/The connection, the energy, the synergy in the room. It’s powerful, and transformational, and it drives forward good practice.
3/ The lightbulb moments – priceless
4/ The support I can provide to others, not just as a trainer but emotionally should they need it (I am a survivor and often meet other survivors in my training room who I am ready to catch if they need it).

My hope is that online training does not become the ‘NORM’ and the easy go-to for training as we move through the next 12 months. We lose so much online.  Lets keep connecting where and when it is safe to do so. #safeguardingchildren #training
