According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, April is National Child Abuse Awareness month. In an effort to raise awareness around child abuse, the Department of Health & Human Services has created a calendar of events that includes ways you can promote child well-being throughout the month of April. To view the calendar of events and tips, or to get involved in child abuse prevention efforts in your community, visit the Department of Health & Human Services' website. While child abuse seems unimaginable to many people, it is important to know the signs so that you can intervene should the situation arise.
