REPORT RELEASE: Child Abuse and Neglect Risks During COVID-19

Child Abuse and Neglect Risks During COVID-19

Included in this report is a summary of relevant research that points to the ways in which economic recessions, unemployment, increases in family violence, mental health, substance use, and parental stress have been correlated to increases in child abuse and neglect during COVID-19. COVID-19 has added social isolation, lack of access to services, and physical health challenges to the mix of stressors for families.
