Child abuse and neglect are serious public health problems that can have long-term impacts on health and wellbeing. At Prevent Child Abuse CT, our vision is a world where no child is ever abused or neglected. Child abuse and neglect are preventable, and everyone benefits when children have safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments. Developing practical pathways to support those relationships and environments is a critical piece of a robust prevention strategy.
