Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, which the Colorado State Legislature recognized with SJR13-024. The Colorado Dept. of Public Health & Environment’s Child Abuse and Neglect manual tells us that children who are abused are more likely to grow up to abuse their own children. Therefore, it is important to stop this circle of abuse. Other resources available from the State of Colorado include the Child Maltreatment Fatality Report; Child Abuse and PreventionChild Abuse and Neglect Cases in the Colorado Courts; and Preventing and Reporting Child Abuse and NeglectHelp children lead happier, healthier lives by being aware of the signs and factors of child abuse and neglect.
