Monthly Health Topic

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

When most people think about child abuse they think of physical abuse to young children. However, child abuse and neglect also includes sexual abuse, neglect, exposure to substances and violence - unfortunately issues that all too often affect teens and young adults. Research in the last several years clearly shows that adverse events in childhood can have significant impact on adolescent and adult phsyical and mental health. This month is not just about identifying and responding to child abuse and neglect but it also includes prevention. When parents possess 6 protective factors the risk for child abuse and neglect diminish. The protective factors are:

  • Nurturing and attachment
  • Knowledge of parenting and of child and youth development
  • Parental resilience
  • Social connections
  • Concrete supports for parents
  • Social and emotional developmental well-being

This month at Teen Health Connection, our prevention efforts will highlight the issues of child abuse and neglect. We encourage you to join our text messaging campaign, enroll in our Parenting the Love and Logic Way class or attend The Big Picture performance.
