Studies on the brain show that physical, emotional, or sexual abuse in childhood can cause permanent damage, reduce the size of parts of the brain, impact the way a child's brain copes with daily stress, and can result in enduring problems such as depression, anxiety, aggression, impulsiveness, delinquency, hyperactivity, and substance abuse.
National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day is a day to join SAMHSA, communities, organizations, agencies, and individuals nationwide in raising awareness that positive mental health is essential to a child's healthy development from birth. This year, the national theme will focus on building resilience in young children dealing with trauma.
The poems in this series are about finding oneself after sexual trauma, finding one’s power and voice. The first person a victim speaks to after a sexual assault occurs is called the “outcry witness”- that’s the second reason for the title. An outcry is what the author is literally trying to raise in written form. An outcry of anger, an outcry of disgust, an outcry of protest saying that we refuse to allow this kind of violence to take place anymore.
Every Friday night, beginning in April, we will be hosting a live Book Discussion of "Ravaged Relentlessly: Biblical Help for Those Overcoming Sexual Crime", by Minister Kesha Rand (Gore). One chapter per week will be discussed. This will include a live-broadcast of the discussion with the Author, as she reads excerpts from the book and leads in the conversation. Participants may view the podcast, call in to join the discussion via conference and/or submit questions and statements by chat.
Please email to request the conference call number. The purpose of this weekly broadcast is to give Survivors of sexual crime a chance to continue to heal. It will also provide a source of helpful information for concerned citizens that recognize the need to be prepared to help a victim. There will be no Broadcasts during the following holiday weekends: Easter (April 22nd), Memorial Day (May 27th), Independence Day (July 1st). Workbooks and Journals will be available for order by by mid-spring. Proceeds from book orders will go to benefit the "Hiding Place Workshop" for Survivors of sexual crime, being held in Maryland October 7-9th.

This webinar will address the challenges campuses face in ending sexual violence, review how community based organizations can work with campuses as well as discuss opportunities for collaboration with funding programs offered by the federal government.

Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.
This webinar is the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (the first webinar examined incidence and prevalence).
Listen to experts discuss what they know about bruising as well as the important role of forensic information and technology in effectively investigating cases of elder abuse and neglect. Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.
