April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, an annual observance dedicated to raising awareness and preventing child maltreatment. Because of COVID-19, we are facing not only a national public health emergency but also a public mental health one as well.
We must all work to protect the well-being of all children and their caregivers. To that end, the Children’s Trust Fund Alliance, along with their parent partners the Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) and the Birth Parent National Network (BPNN), have created several free, downloadable resources to promote the protective factors that keep families strong.
