Report: Solutions To Stop Sexual Violence Against Children [npr.org]

By Susan Brink, NPR.org, November 19, 2019 Sexual violence against children happens everywhere: in wealthy enclaves, in slums, in suburbs, in rural villages.

Save the Life of Your Child

Mark Goulston ·
Some of my colleagues and I have developed a process and program called, "Design Thinking Suicide Prevention," that we have been presenting at mental health conferences .

In fact, just the word "mental" causes people to run for the hills unless it directly affects them or a family member. Design...

This is important and needed and parent supports helps parents and families. it's hard to show the exact ways it's cost effective, in the long run, to work more on...
