Even if the caregiver didn’t mean to cause injury, when the child is injured it is abuse.
All of us bring our knowledge, experience, and passion to Our Work.
The lack of culturally adapted and validated instruments for child mental health and psychosocial support in low and middle-income countries is a barrier to assessing prevalence of mental health problems, evaluating interventions, and determining program cost-effectiveness.
Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States.
It’s a terrible epidemic that we at Childhelp are dedicated to put an end to.
Children need enough care to be healthy and enough supervision to be safe.
Adults that care for children must provide clothing, food and drink.A child also needs safe, healthy shelter, and adequate supervision.Examples of physical neglect: Parents and caregivers must provide children with appropriate treatment for injuries and illness.Physical abuse of a child is when a parent or caregiver causes any non-accidental physical injury to a child. If you see any of the following signs, please get help right away.Physical abuse includes striking, kicking, burning, biting, hair pulling, choking, throwing, shoving, whipping or any other action that injures a child.Because of the lack of child mental health professionals in Nepal, a psychosocial counselor performed an alternative validation procedure using psychosocial functioning as a criterion for intervention.
