April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.The occasion is a sober reminder that children across our state continue to suffer from abuse and neglect each day. MSPCC works all year to protect children through programs aimed at prevention and intervention. This month, MSPCC is working to shine a light on this issue and spread the word about ways everyone can help to keep children safe. You can help.

KNOW THE SIGNS OF CHILD ABUSE & NEGLECT

Every case of child abuse or neglect is different and specific to the individual situation. There are recognizable physical and behavioral indicators of child abuse or neglect. By learning and recognizing some of these common signs, you may be able to help save the life of a child. 

 

SPREAD AWARENESS

 

 

 

 

Help spread awareness throughout the month by sharing MSPCC's updates about abuse prevention on twitter and facebook. Show your support for prevention efforts by changing your facebook profile picture or cover photo.

 

 SUPPORT MSPCC

MSPCC aims to stop abuse and neglect by providing support services and home-visiting programs for at-risk families. When a child is abused, MSPCC responds by providing mental health services to help children heal from trauma and by helping children find new homes through foster care and adoption.
