Maine Events Highlight Child Abuse Prevention

Maine law enforcement and local child abuse prevention councils will participate in a variety of events throughout April for Child Abuse Prevention month.

Events planned for the month are designed to bring attention to the need to prevent child abuse and neglect and to recognize the community partnerships that work on the issue.  

Speaking at a State House event, Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Mary Mayhew said that prevention begins in the community.
