Month of April: Health Observance Topic
National Child Abuse Prevention (NCAP) Month
April Observance 2016
April is known as National Child Abuse Prevention (NCAP) Month. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to promote the many prevention strategies and awareness information of child neglect to people across the country (childwelfare.gov). NCAP month is a time to acknowledge the communities and families who are working together to prevent child abuse and child negligence.
According to the CDC and a 2012 Child Maltreatment study, a report of child abuse is made every ten seconds. Sadly, the United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations for child abuse and neglect. Preventing child abuse and neglect is important because it also prevents any risk for the child to develop depression which can lead to future addictions or mental health disorders.
Child Welfare Information Gateway offers multiple resource publications for At-Risk Families to refer to regarding Defining Child Abuse and Neglect as well as Preventing it. For more information on National Child Abuse Prevention Month, visit childwelfare.org.
