One in 10 children you know will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Research shows that people who are sexually violated as children are far more likely to experience psychological problems often lasting into adulthood, including Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, depression, suicide, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout and relationship problems.
As an accredited member of the National Children’s Alliance, the Child Advocacy Center of Niagara, a service of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center coordinates a multidisciplinary approach to responding to allegations of child abuse. You can help by learning the signs of child abuse and reporting abuse when suspected.
For more information on how to empower adults through awareness and educational programs to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to childhood sexual abuse, please call the Child Advocacy of Niagara at 285-0045 - ask for our Education and Outreach Coordinator.
