Monthly Health Topic

April is Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention Month

Child maltreatment includes all types of abuse and neglect of a child under the age of 18 by a parent, caregiver, or another person in a custodial role (coach or teacher). There are four common types of abuse:

  • Physical Abuse: intentional physical force (hitting, kicking, shaking, burning)
  • Sexual Abuse: engaging a child in a sexual act
  • Emotional Abuse: behaviors that harm a child's self-worth or emotional well-being (name calling, shaming, rejection, withholding love)
  • Neglect: the failure to meet a child's basic needs (housing, food, clothing, education, access to medical care)

Child maltreatment is a public health issue. Abuse can happen to any child at any age and the few cases that we read about or see in the news are only a small part of the problem. The statistics are alarming:
The total lifetime cost of child maltreatment is $124 billion each year.
More than 3 million referrals of child maltreatment are received by state and local agencies each year - that is nearly 6 referrals every minute. [read more...]
